Fun Fare A Treasury of Reader's Digest Wit and Humor, 1949
Fun Fare, 1949, a treasury of 20th century wit and humor with illustrations by Robert Day is a generous collection of the inserted bits of fun you expect from the pages of the Reader's Digest.
The colorful illustrations, as well as the eye-catching cover, are clever and numerous. There is an index for those who are searching for a certain topic of wit and humor.
It says that these bits have been selected by the Reader's Digest editors in collaboration with Bob Hope, Bennett Cerf, Groucho Marx, Don Herold, Ogden Nash, and J. P. McEvoy, who wrote the introductory essay "What's Funny?" But there are other contributors. Also, for everyone who remembers the humor of the mid 20th century, this book will prove a favorite collectible addition to the bedside table.
This hardcover book is in good condition- no tears or marks, very firm binding, a little browning of the pages, some shelf wear but not much, just the signs of many hands from the past, big and little. There is no dust jacket.
It measures 5 1/2 inches by 7 3/4 inches by 1 inch and has 316 pages.
