1 Darrow, Clarence S. Farmington
Chicago McClurg & Co. 1904 First Edition Cloth 
First printing: September 24, 1904. Very Good+ in the publisher's original green cloth. Both the spine and the decorative front board are stamped in black, blue, and gilt; the front is stamped, also, in ivory. The top-edge is gilt. 277pps. Mild rubbing to the boards, principally at the extremities; all the gilt is brilliant. The ffep has been glued to the front pastedown, presumably to strengthen the front hinge; the rear hinge is fine and the binding is, overall, tight with all pages secure. The text is bright and immaculate; no foxing, dog-ears, thumbing, etc. There is a small bookstore-stamp at the bottom of the rear pastedown: no other ownership markings. Overall, a beautiful, clean, copy. Darrow is best known for his defense in 1925 of high school teacher John T. Scopes ('The Scopes Trial'), who was charged with violating Tennessee law by teaching evolution.

"...A semi-autobiographical novel written when the famous attorney was in his mid-forties, based upon recollections of his own childhood in rural America. He described it as 'neither fact nor expurgated story of a life.' This is a classic piece of genuine Americana, which also serves as a fine work of social and personal history, told with incisive, delicious humor..."
