1 Armour, Richard Going Around in Academic Circles: A Low View of Higher Education
New York McGraw-Hill Book Company 1965 First Edition Cloth Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Illustrated by Hershfield, Leo

Blue boards are clean and bright. Very minor wear at bottom corners. DJ price-clipped, with very minor edgewear. Humorous illustrations throughout by Leo Hershfield. A clean, attractive copy.

"In what is, in effect, a parody of a college catalog, Armour gives the Armour treatment to such subjects as admissions, campus, roommates, expenses, employment, scholarships, class attendance, grades, physical education, the honor code, faculty advisors, department heads, the curriculum, and commencement speakers. Nothing escapes the Armour-piercing scrutiny. Though this is mostly a prose book, the chapter on Faculty and Staff presents an academic Spoon River Anthology that has more knife than spoon. This book is for everybody, but especially for presidents, deans, professors, alumni, students, drop-outs, drop-ins, and people with a sense of humor."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
Price: 7.95 USD
