INSCRIBED BY FRAN LEBOWITZ
LEBOWITZ, Fran. Social Studies. New York: Random House, 1981. Octavo, original red wrappers. $150.
Uncorrected proof of Lebowitz's second collection of essays, inscribed by her in the year of publication, "9/22/81. For Bob & Enid—Thanks for the memories. Your friend, Fran Lebowitz," with a drawing of a frowning face smoking a cigarette.
Lebowitz is a well-known smoker and advocate of smoker's rights, perhaps her the humorous drawing. The recipient Bob Cohen was a sales representative for the publisher.
