Buchwald, Art  
YOU CAN FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME
 Picture
Publisher: G. P. Putman's Sons, NY, 1985.
Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. First Edition. 1. Hard Cover. ISBN: 0399131043 FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. Hardcover with price-clipped dust jacket. 8vo (6.5 x 9.25"). 332 pp. Quarter bound in publisher's red buckram cloth over gray boards, gilt lettering on spine. Gray endpapers. Illustrated by Steve Mendelson. FINE/NEAR FINE. This is a collection of Art Buchwald's humorous insights into the problems with the government in Washington. Mr. Buchwald claims to be neither a Democrat or a Republican, but is against whoever is in power. As Ronald Reagan's biggest fan (because he thought he would provide more material for humor) it was logical that Buchwald would provide a running commentary on the Reagan administration. "You Can Fool All of the People All the Time - but you can only fool Art Buchwald half the time. In this, his twenty-first book, Mr. Buchwald takes another look at the Reagan administration, to see if it is funnier now than it was four years ago. The answer is a resounding yes!". Drawings. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

Cobean, Sam, Illustrated by: Cobean, Sam  
Cobean's Naked Eye
 Picture
Publisher: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1950 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall First edition (stated). "Will cannibals adopt the pressure cooker? Can a Boy Scout light a cigarette without a match? Is it possible for four mothers to have one baby? What significant part do dogs play in the sex life of the American Male and Female? If questions like these have been bothering you along with everyone else, a quiet (if possible) perusal of Cobean's Naked Eye will offer no permanent solution. If anything, these cartoons by the popular New Yorker artist are likely to give you nothing more than a slightly off-center but vastly more comfortable attitude toward such phenomena as sandwich men, two-toed sloths, tattoo artists, middle-aged women and men of distinction. To respond properly to these drawings you need nothing more than your own eyes (if you have the eyesight of a Cobean male, all the luckier for you). Later, the next time you are thrown out of a saloon or a bear offers to sell you his photograph, the most subtle phase of your reaction will begin.." Not paginated. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; wear and small tears to edges.
