Father of the Bride (SOLD)

Streeter, Edward. Father of the BrideBook Club Edition. 1949. Book and dust jacket are both in very good condition. Illustrated by Gluyas Williams.

As this comedic novel makes clear, the bride’s father does not only gain a son-in-law, he loses most of the money he had stashed away for retirement. The book follows Stanley Banks as he negotiates his way through the process, first attempting to convince his daughter to elope and later scheming to invite far-away guests who will not be able to make it to the ceremony. This was the basis for the 1950 Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, Elizabeth Taylor film, which itself was the basis for the Steve Martin, Diane Keaton remake. Includes frequent cartoon-style illustrations.
