Paul Bunyan

Knopf, 1925. Lewis, Allen. First Edition. Hardcover. Sticker residue in upper left of front cover. This is a robust and well preserved first edition of James Stevens' retelling of the Paul Bunyan tall tales. Stevens was generally credited with popularizing the Bunyan legend. Sinclair Lewis once said of Stevens, "No one knows the violent men, the violent mountains and woods, of the not-so-old west better than James Stevens, or can recall them more musically." This first edition of his best-known work would be at home in the library of any lover of folkore or Americana. Very good. Item #58
