Very Good. First edition. Illustrated by Henry O'Connor. 301pp. Publisher's orange cloth. Very good or better with light scattered spotting, without dustwrapper. With an Autograph Letter Signed, a two page Typed Letter Signed, and one newspaper clipping laid in. While the letters are not dated, their clear association to the book indicates they are both from 1927. The one page autograph letter is addressed to the great boxing champion Gene Tunney, from "J.T. Holmes, " informing him that the enclosed book is autographed by the author, James Connolly, "as you will find inside." However, Connolly doesn't seem to have signed it. The two page typed letter is addressed to one "Joe" from "HenO" with many detailed references to Tunney and Connolly, and the nature of Tunney's celebrity status at this time. Connolly was a noted American athlete and author. In 1896 he won the first event (triple jump) at the first Olympic championship of modern times, and later he became an authority on maritime writing, after spending many years at sea on fishing boats and military ships. An apt association.
