Garden City NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.. Very Good in Very Good dj. 1950. Later Printing. Hardcover. [good solid copy, light shelfwear, age-tanning to edges of text block, fading to spine cloth, a handful of randomly-distributed light faded spots on rear cover; jacket quite browned at spine and along top edge of rear panel, a bit of wear to top of spine, small scraped spot (with tiny hole) on rear panel]. A comic novel about college football, featuring "one of the most charming, most engaging characters to appear in recent fiction -- a creature of rare good humor and sanity -- the man from Wittemberg, Professor Fodorski, [who] precipitated himself upon the New World with a hundred-odd dollars and an English grammar as his only possessions." A friend lands him a job in the Engineering Department of Southern Baptist Institute of Technology, where his "exposure to football and his subsequent mad espousal of it is a beautiful thing to watch." .
