Item #17190 My Philadelphia Father. Cordelia Drexel Biddle.

My Philadelphia Father SIGNED

Garden City, N.Y. Doubleday & Company, 1955. Cloth. SIGNED (TWICE) BY THE AUTHOR CORDELIA DREXEL BIDDLE on the front free endpaper. A solid, very presentable copy to boot of the uncommon 1955 hardback. Tight and Near Fine (just a touch of light spotting to the panels) in a bright, price-intact, VG dustjacket, with light chipping along the tips and the spine ends, and a bit of mild rubbing at the rear panel. A charming, lighthearted look at "one of Philadelphia's wealthiest and most influential families", specifically in this case a "rollicking biography of Colonel A.J. Drexel Biddle". Octavo, a generous sampling of crisp black-and-white photos accompanies the text, which was told by Cordelia Drexel Biddle to Kyle Crichton. Very Good + / Very Good -. Item #17190

Price: $150.00
