Thurber, James Grover, 1894-1961.  
The Thurber Carnival. Written and Illustrated by James Thurber.

Publisher: N.Y., Harper & Bros. [1945; A wartime publication].
xiii, 369 p., illus.; 22.5 cm. Too many people have come to grief trying to define and analyze James Thurber's particular genius for us to dare to do more than say simply that this is a selection of his best writings and drawings, sifted from the whole of his work during the past fifteen years. However, we are quite willing to go on record as saying flatly that we doubt if any book published in 1945 will contain as much concentrated brilliance, wild humor, and innocent wisdom. Contents include Stories Not Collected Before in Book Form; from My World and Welcome to It; from Let Your Mind Alone; from The Middle-Aged Man on the Flying Trapeze; My Life and Hard Times, complete; from Fables for Our Time and Famous Poems Illustrated; from The Owl in the Attic; from The Seal in the Bedroom; from Men, Women and Dogs; The War Between Men and Women.

Many of the pieces here, none of which has ever before appeared in book form, are concerned with exposing the frightful losses which our language has already suffered without anyone noticing."
