New York Knopf 1940 First Edition Cloth Fine Very Good 
First Printing 1940. From the collection of M. B. Goldstone-with his custom gold plate lightly affixed on the front pastedown. A fine copy in a very good unclipped dustjacket.

Medium age toning to the spine--the normal darkening at the spine and back DJ--but not much on the back cover. Otherwise the front jacket cover is nice.

Sapphira and the Slave Girl, Cather, Willa
14 Cather, Willa Sapphira and the Slave Girl
New York Knopf 1940 First Edition Cloth Near Fine No Jacket 
First Edition--Complimentary Advance Copy. Unlike the first trade edition--this complimentary edition says "First Edition" on the copyright page, and the wording to "A Note on The Design" at rear is also a little different. This is a nice and tight copy, clean interior with a bright green cloth front board and paper label. The spine has the usual tone darkening--instead of green it is now almost tan--which is quite common for this title. Without the darkening to the cloth spine this would be a fine copy. No dustjacket. This was Cather's last book. Taking place in Cather's birthplace state of Virginia just before the Civil War, the storyline revolves around a mulatto girl and her jealous mistress.
