The above signature (from a canceled check) makes you the owner of the only autographed copy of this book in existence. Ring Lardner Jr." A Ring Lardner selection edited and introductions by Babette Rosmond and Henry Morgan, and a special introduction by Sarah E. Spooldripper who "lived with the Lardners for years and took care of their wolf. She knew all there was to know about Lardner, and her mind was virtually blank. It was part of her charm."
