Dancers in the Wind. Allan UPDEGRAFF.

Dancers in the Wind

New York: Boni & Liveright, 1925. First edition. Small octavo. Yellow cloth stamped in black; 368 pp. A Near Fine copy with just a hint of rubbing and dust-soiling; no dust jacket. Allan Updegraff (1883-1965) was an American-born writer, poet, and editor who died an expatriate in Paris in 1965. He is largely forgotten and copies of many of his books are quite scarce. We only find one other copy of this title in commerce (and in less-than-collectible condition) and only a dozen copies found via OCLC. Updegraff seems to be best remembered as a roommate and close friend of Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) when they were at Yale together; they were later employed as "servants" at Upton Sinclair's short-lived utopian Helicon Home Colony and Updegraff married Sinclair's fiance of two years, the author Edith Summers Kelley (1884-1956). (Kaplan, 64). Item #01430
