THE BOOKMAN for February, 1913 (Volume XXXVI, pp. 595-6), also brief mention in THE BOOKMAN for September and October, 1912.

Lardner: "The best sporting fiction we know of, practically the only sporting fiction an adult may read without fear of stomach trouble, is contained in the collected works of the late Charles E.

Very Good in Good jacket. Size: 8vo 8"-9" tall; Hardcover copy, tan cloth spine lettered in brown, over beige paper-covered boards lettered on front in brown with front cover art on a pasted-on label. Forward spine cock, binding edges are very lightly rubbed. Page block edges are just starting to darken. Book is tightly bound, unfaded, and clean and bright inside and out. In an illustrated dust jacket that is rubbed at its edges, with a few short closed tears, and that is a little smudged on its faces with what looks like soot, as well as a little darkened with age at its spine ends and extreme margins. Dust jacket is in a clear plastic protector. Essays by Overton on those of his contemporaries who are published by Doran, so book is something of a promotional piece; nine of the essays, on individual writers, include tipped in black-and-white portaits of those writers, as well as bibliographies of their work. The other thirteen essays are mostly on genres, each essay covering several writers. The book's title is a conflation of the titles of the two big best sellers of the time, A. S. M. Hutchinson's If Winter Comes and Sinclair Lewis's Main Street--neither of which was published by Doran. 384 pp.
