(no dust jacket) [light shelfwear, one small dent in top edge of each cover, one-time owner's name and date of purchase on ffep]. (4 sepia-toned film stills) Tully's breakthrough book typecast him forever as the "hobo author," although he rejected the label, always making the distinction among hobies, tramps, drifters, and "road kids," and insisting that his youthful wanderings put him in the latter category. An American classic, it remains his most famous book -- not least because of the 1928 movie version, in conjunction with which this "Photoplay Edition" was issued. The film -- one of only two to be based on a Tully book -- was directed by William Wellman and starred Richard Arlen, Wallace Beery, and Louise Brooks. Brooks spent the majority of the film disguised as a boy; she is depicted in three of the four stills that illustrate the text of this edition. Included with the purchase of this book will be a copy of my illustrated booklet "The Dozen and One: A Field Guide to the Books of Jim Tully."
