$275
Title: Babbitt
Author: Sinclair Lewis
Publisher: Harcourt, Brace and Company
Printing Year: 1922

Condition/Details: Bound in navy cloth with orange lettering, this antique volume is a scarce author-signed work from the acclaimed author Sinclair Lewis. The work is signed on the front free endpaper. This work was purchased by our consignor in the late 1960's at a bookstore in Philadelphia and has since remained in the family. This volume is a first edition, second state, with the errors on page 49 corrected.

With Babbitt (1922) Sinclair Lewis consolidated the reputation he had earned with his first best-selling novel, Main Street (1920). Like Main Street, Babbitt not only became a best seller, but it generated controversy, became a US cultural phenomenon, and eventually contributed a new word to the language. (Although the word “Babbitt” has come to mean a “smugly conventional person,” George F. Babbitt is a more complex individual – and more troubled – than the dictionary definition would suggest.) Babbitt is the story of a middle-aged real estate broker who faces a series of psychological crises that reveal to him the emptiness of his superficially successful and prosperous life. As a setting for the novel, Lewis created an imaginary city, Zenith, and an imaginary mid-western state, Winnemac, which he would use again in later novels. (detail courtesy of the Literary Encyclopedia)

The volume shows light external age/wear, with sunning to the spine and rubbing to the cloth. The front board is cracked along the internal gutter. The text block is well bound, with some play to the binding. The pages are age-toned, with significant toning to the endpapers. The book measures approximately 5" x 7 1/2" and contains 401 pages.
