Title: Harry Vernon at Prep
Description: Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1959. Hardcover. 14 x 21 cm. Pale orange boards with green and black text. Light bumping to top and bottom of spine . Jacket is edge worn with nicks and small tears with some loss. It has had larger rips but someone has taped them up from the inside of the jacket so not visible from the front. Internal boards a little grubby .Top page block is yellow.Contents all clean and tight with no inscriptions etc. Stated 1st printing. Comic novel in which the title character, too happy for work, too simple for politics, too much for the best minds at Harvard, and one jump ahead of the cops, takes refuge in a teaching job at a New England prep school, dear old Grey Hall. If you've been looking for high, wide and headlong comedy, here is the answer -- an answer to the Beat Generation, to the Education Question, to the blues. Jacket design by Edward Gorey.. Good .
