[slight crack in binding at lower front hinge, also at top of spine (but still firmly bound), a bit of wear (with slight exposure of boards) at top and bottom corners]. (cartoon illustrations) Published shortly after his untimely death in April 1931 at the age of 53, this is a representative selection of the work of a longtime editorial cartoonist for The Oregonian. The introduction, by the paper's editorial director R.G. Callvert, is a nice tribute with a good amount of biographical information. Reynolds, a native of Iowa, first got into the newspaper game as a teenager, and very soon found his metier and began his 34-year career as a cartoonist, working at papers in California, Washington, and Vancouver, B.C. before landing at The Oregonian in 1911, where he remained (except for a six-year stint back in Tacoma) until his death. Early in his career, he created the figure of "the little tiger which for nearly thirty years watched the affairs of the world go by, and voiced its creator's views on these affairs"; this editorial creature is seen throughout the pages of this book, accompanying the cartoonist's visual commentary on local, national and international topics, including World War I, political corruption and graft, Calvin Coolidge, stock market greed, Prohibition, Charles Lindbergh, Santa Claus, etc. Very uncommon.
