Comic medical fiction. Moderate general wear. Contains 1947-1948 correspondence between J. Lionberger Davis and author Barnaby Dogbolt. Davis was a lawyer, WWII director of Alien (enemy) Property Custodian, head of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, poet, and rare book collector. Herbert Silvette (1907-2002) (pen name Barnaby Dogbolt) retired from teaching physiology and pharmacology in Virginia in January 1947 due to health reasons. Adhered to front endpaper is a typed 6 stanza poem by Davis titled ''To: Barnaby Dogbolt'. Stanza 4: ''So give us tales of Goose and Girl Which make our thoughts revolve and whirl In brains that once were clear and bright At morn, at noon, in moonlit night.'' Flypage has bookplate of Davis which is designed by artist Ralph Fletcher Seymour. Further attached are 1 letter from Davis and 3 letters from Dogbolt (Ole Doc). Excerpts from Dogbolt's lengthy letters: (due to) ''...pleurisy, weltschmerz and St. Francis' evil...I resigned a $5000 a year professorship for a precarious writer's career.'' 'Here is the real dilemma of the modern novelist. He can produce a chaste and subdued tale like mine of the Goose, and please the critics; or he can mix ''Sin and Sex'' (the publisher's superficial characterization of EVE) which the public will buy.'' 'Lord, don't get me started on the subject of dust jackets and publisher's blurbs!...I had much rather the publisher prefaced my books with Hazlitt's 'Lectures on the English Comic Writers', so the reader would at least learn in what ancient and honorable tradition I really write.'' 'My next book is called 'Bramble Bush'...It is said to be the best yet, and so horribly serious that it's terribly funny.' ''I really have hopes this 'English' novel will pull me through, but of course it will be almost two years before I realize on it...'' 318 pages.
