Advance copy of Welty's third book with a dated review slip tipped to the front free endpaper. Owner signature of the reviewer on the endpaper, Beverly Layman of the University of Virginia, with a small ink date and the initials "VQR" (Virginia Quarterly Review) in the gutter of the title page.

Fine in a very near fine dustwrapper with the pink portion of the spine, which is usually faded out to near invisibility, only slightly faded and very easily readable. The only flaw is a vertical pink stain on the spine, possibly the result of a printer's error. Only the third copy we have seen that retains a substantial portion of the pink spine lettering, and rare thus. Author's elusive third book, cheaply manufactured during wartime and virtually never found in this condition. See this book in 3D on our site.
