New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co., 1938. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on front endpage - "For Will Hays With recollection of a prized association, now long enough in the years to be "auld lang syne" Mark Sullivan". Will H. Hays managed Warren G. Hardings successful campaign for the Presidency of the U.S. and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in that position, he resigned to become most famously known as the first President of Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), which under his guidance published a blacklist of actors and workers studios should not hire, inserted moral clauses into actors' contracts, and published an informal list of suggested guidelines for film producers. When the Catholic Church formed its Legion of Decency and threatened nationwide boycotts of movies, Hays installed a more formal production code, called the Hays Code( later simply "The Code"), which became the virtual law of Hollywood until the 1960s. Mark Sullivan was a syndicated columnist and became one of the leading journalists in the country during the 1920s until his death in 1952. He also wrote a popular social history of America, "Our Times: The United States, 1900-1925", a six volume work, written between 1926-1935. The book is Near Fine, slight toning to endpages, in a Very Good dustjacket, small chips and edge tears. No typical Doubleday statement of First Edition on copyright page, yet no additional printings listed. A very nice Association Copy indeed !. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. Later Printing. Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. Association Copy.
