Garden City: Doubleday & Company, n.y. 8vo. Green cloth, pictorial dust jacket. xii, 317pp. Near fine/very good. Mild bit of jacket wear. Early (not first) printing, tight and attractive, of this 1943 classic of immigration memoir -- bearing his huge, bold author signature in blue ballpoint on the front flyleaf, and a marking in his hand below this -- presumably his signature in Arabic. Rizk (1909-73) was born in Lebanon and immigrated to the U.S. as a young man, and this autobiography is an unusual account of an Arab-American's assimilation into American society.
