First edition of Frederick Lewis Allen’s historic work. Octavo, original boards, illustrated. Very good in a good dust jacket with some loss to the spine.
Deftly written with a humorous touch, Frederick Lewis Allen's Only Yesterday is an informal story of the Post-War Decade in America from the Armistice in November, 1918 to the Coolidge era of prosperity. Anything but academic, Allen weaves the fads and follies of the decade together into a great pattern of history.
