That is an excellent book Mark, you will enjoy it cover to cover. I read it a good number of years ago now when I added a nice 1935 1st edition of it to my library. (cough cough, bragging, cough cough)
Somehow I knew you had a first edition Lou. I do honestly love owning history but a 100 year old word sounds the same as a 25 year old word in my head when reading. With that being said, Abe books has a first edition if anyone is interested. I have dealt with them a few times and are a pleasure to do business with.
