New York Dodd, Mead 1951 First Cloth Fine Very Good

A must have for the Cather collector--written by a woman who taught some of the children connected with the characters in the novels--as Cather took the real life characters she met and adapted them for her characters. Red cloth with brown and gilt lettering and decoration. A very collectable copy. Dustjacket not shown in digital image--but additional pics can be emailed--DJ is near fine.

2 Brooks, Geraldine March (Signed Hard Wraps- Pulitzer)
E Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A. Penguin USA 2006 0143036661 / 9780143036661 Hard Paper Wraps Fine No Jacket 
First Edition/Signed by author on title page. This is an unread very fine paperback copy of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of 2006 from Geraldine Brooks. Signed recently by the author in New York City at a much publicized signing event for her new novel, "The People of the Book" which is also rumoured to be on the short list for the Pulitzer--along with Hosseini's "A Thousand Splendid Suns". Based on the character "Captain March" (father and Civil War Chaplain) from Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women", Brooks used the story line to develop themes on war, brutality, and respect for fellow man. Brook's poetic writing has the reader enthralled from the first couple of pages--and the opening scene of Captain March trying to hang on to a drowning soldier in a river is one of the very best openings to a novel in recent years. Rare paper wraps signed copy.

Sapphira and the Slave Girl, Cather, Willa
15 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.
