Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine. Tanned on the reverse. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned.

Illustrated with cartoons by the author. From the cover: “Includes a letter from Feiffer to David Brook dated October 4, 1966 on his personal letter headed paper. In a series of a dozen or so pictures the author shoes the shifts of mood that flicker across the faces of men and women as they try, often vainly, to explain themselves to the world. Jules Feiffer has revolutionised the strip cartoon. Until recently his satirical comments on the war between the sexes and the H-Bomb, mother figures and enfants terribles, psychiatry and the outsider, were known only in Greenwich Village. But to-day fifty newspapers in America carry his strips and his weekly cartoon is a regular feature of The Observer.”
