Salt Water Taffy - Or, Twenty Thousand Leagues Away from the Sea, Ford, Corey
5 Salt Water Taffy - Or, Twenty Thousand Leagues Away from the Sea
Ford, Corey
New York G. P. Putnam's Sons 1929 First Hardcover Fine Very Good Jacket 
Clean hardcover book and dust jacket, with crazy and cute publicity photos from the publisher laid in. The back of each photo has typed commentary pasted on back of photo. Book is very clean brown cloth boards with gray leettering and small fish decoration on cover, gray lettering on spine. No fading, bumping or wear. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with clean map-illustrated endpapers. No previous owner markings. Illustrated with 34 spoofy photographs. 206 pages. Dust jacket is clean and bright, not price clipped, has numerous tiny edge chips and short closed edge tears. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. "The Almost Incredible Autobiography of Capt. Ezra Triplett's Seafaring Daughter." In 1929 silent-film actress Joan Lowell published an autobiography, Cradle of the Deep, detailing a childhood spent adventuring around the South Seas as a sea captain's daughter. It was almost immediately proved to be bunkum (by, among other things, statements from her former neighbors, who remembered her actual childhood in Berkeley, California). Humorist Corey Ford published this spoof within months, "Salt Water Taffy." Tucked into this copy of Taffy are a few publicity photos from the publisher. Note that the stock model in the photo bears a striking resemblance to Lowell. Even though "Cradle of the Deep" was proven to be a work of fiction, RKO Pictures made a "documentary" based on the work, 1934's "Adventure Girl." Lowell starred in it. It was her last picture before she left the industry to get married...to a sea-captain, with whom she had a few real-life seafaring adventures. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction, or fiction strives to be truth! 026091
