Alas, this title is out-of-print

Daniel Aaron kept this scrap book from 1937 through 2011. Its contents can be summed up in this quote from the novelist Nathanael West: “Few things are sadder than the truly monstrous.”

Aaron is the preeminent Americanist of his generation and the first to receive a PhD from Harvard in the History of American Civilization. He was the founding President of the Library of America.

Noah Feldman, Harvard law professor and author, provides a note on Scrap Book and there is an interview with Aaron conducted by the comic book historian Hillary Chute.
