There were three reasons I bought How to lose friends and alienate people by Irving D. Tressler, ©1937, at an estate sale this morning.

The first one is the wonderful title.  Who wouldn’t love to have that appear on their bookshelf?

The second is the charming hand-drawn inscription.  S.B. must have thought highly of F.V. to have put so much effort into it, almost 80 years ago.

And the third is the dedication- two years before the start of the second world war, and four years before America’s entry into it.
