More Information
James Thurber, 1894 - 1961, was an American short story writer and cartoonist. He is best remembered for Walter Mitty, successfully adapted for the big screen and starring Danny Kaye. His illustrative work is very closely associated with the New Yorker magazine. His work is very collectable with early titles being fairly valuable. American editions, generally, precede and are of greater value. Early first editions in nice dust jackets are not easy to come by and a full set would take some accumulating.
