Cobb, Irvin S.: Local Color (collected shorts). v1. 02 Aug 2017

LOCAL COLOR
A collection of short stories BY IRVIN S. COBB (1876–1944)

The contents of this book first appeared 1914–1916 in the magazine “The Saturday Evening Post”. This collection, Local Color, was published in 1916. Text is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life + 70” or less, and in the USA.
_______________
Irvin Shrewsbury Cobb was an American author, humorist, editor, and columnist from Paducah, Kentucky who relocated to New York in 1904 for the remainder of his life, writing for the New York “World”, “The Saturday Evening Post”, “Cosmopolitan”, and other newspapers and magazines. Cobb wrote more than 300 short stories and 60 books (most of these being collections of his stories and articles). Some of his works were adapted for film.

Cobb was one of America’s most popular humorists during the first third of the 20th century, but his writing was not limited to comedy only. His descriptive writing was masterful, and his stories were often dramatic, poignant, tragic – even terror-ridden.

Herewith, a tasty buffet serving up tidbits of the many flavors of Irvin S. Cobb.
_______________
Text was obtained from gutenberg.org. Transcription errors were corrected; punctuation, diacritics, and italics formatted; American spelling restored (as in initial magazine publication); some spelling and punctuation modernized to provide consistency.
