Brooks' first major work, dedicated to John Hall Wheelock. In his autobiography (1965, p.360) he reported that "(Scott Fitzgerald) had sent me a copy of "The Great Gatsby" from Capri, where he was staying in 1925. He had found in a bookshop there "America's Coming of Age, which he had bought and read 'with enormous pleasure', the book that Huneker had reviewed and Carl Van Doren read, standing, beside a shelf of new accessions. It was 'virtually the first book to voice the new age,' Carl Van Doren wrote to me at a time when I was scarcely aware that anyone had read it." A little soiling and staining, some rubbing. A Good, sound copy.
