Sinclair Lewis, celebrated author of Babbitt and Main Street, wrote more than twenty novels in the course of his prolific career, most of which went through several editions over the years. This is the definitive descriptive bibliography of the Lewis catalog, now available with a new biographical essay and dozens of additional entries. A full chapter is devoted to each novel, including close-up photos of covers and spines as well as comprehensive information about original publishers, prices, print runs, and bindings. Stephen R. Pastore’s book will be an invaluable book collector’s and scholar’s guide to the identification of original Lewis volumes.
