    Owen Johnson. The Tennessee Shad, Chronicling the Rise and Fall of the Firm of Doc Macnooder and the Tennessee Shad. New York: The Baker & Taylor Company, 1911.

    First edition. Small octavo. 307 pages plus advertisements. Illustrations by F. R. Gruger. Frontispiece.

    Crimson cloth with black and white pictorial spine and front cover. Page containing frontispiece with tissue guard is detached, but present. Hinges cracked but sturdy. Decorated covers are bright and beautiful. Overall, this is a very good copy in a chipped and worn dust jacket; jacket is in three pieces, split along the front flap and the rear joint. Housed in a striking gilt-stamped red quarter leather and cloth custom box and chemise.

    One of Johnson's "Lawrenceville Stories" in which the exuberant prep school boys continue to wreak havoc.
