Description

This is the scarcest, slimmest New Yorker “issue” ever printed, featuring a cover profile of chain-smoking Harold Ross as Eustace Tilley peering at a “butterfly” (fellow Algonquin Roundtable member Alexander Woolcott) by “Penaninsky” (Rea Irvin). It was created for Ross’ amusement with contributions by his staff and friends.
