THE HISTORY OF PROVINCETOWN

(1999). 1st edition, signed by the author on the verso of the 1st free end-page. 64pp. Illustrated by the author.  Hardcover with dust jacket.  A fine copy with a fine dust jacket.  *This colorful book is an endearing visual description of one of the nation's most eclectic towns by a resident whose specialty is humorous art--a medium that actually does justice to Provincetown. It's filled with inside jokes (the man who applauded for hours at nothing; the harbormaster who dived off the wharf after his false teeth, which fell out when he was arguing with some tourists), and gossip about the celebrities who have lived in P'town (Sinclair Lewis, Tennessee Williams, Jackson Pollock, Norman Mailer). The History of Provincetown is dedicated "to those who came, couldn't park, and left." -- Boston Magazine, June 1999 $35.00
