The jacket is colorful and has the original price of $3.95 at the top of the inside front flap. With light rubbing to the tops of the spine ends and at the corners. With a closed of 2" vertical tear along the bottom edge of the front panel where it meets the spine. Tape has been applied to the verso. Pulitzer-prize winning novel. A Death in the Family is an autobiographical novel by author James Agee, set in Knoxville, Tennessee. He began writing it in 1948, but it was not quite complete when he died in 1955. It was edited and released posthumously in 1957 by editor David McDowell. Agee's widow and children were left with little money after Agee's death and McDowell wanted to help them by publishing the work. Agee won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1958 for the novel. The novel was included onTime's 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923. The novel is based on the events that occurred to Agee in 1915 when his father went out of town to see his own father, who had suffered a heart attack. During the return trip, Agee's father was killed in a car accident. The novel provides a portrait of life in Knoxville, Tennessee, showing how such a loss affects the young widow, her two children, her atheist father and the dead man's alcoholic brother. (Wikipedia) First Edition with Obolensky copyright of 1957 and no subsequent printings listed. Bookseller Inventory # 489

Book Description New York City, NY: Library Of America, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 825 pages. Published in 2005. Retrospective collection of the author's greatest works. The First Slipcased Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent printings. Published in a small and limited first print run as a Slipcased Edition for distribution to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies were sold to the public. The Slipcased Edition has the same ISBN as the regular trade edition and is now rare. An austerely elegant production: Regular-sized volume format. Text by James Agee edited and annotated by Michael Sragow. Photographs by Walker Evans. Cream hard board slipcase. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant. The book is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents James Agee's and Walker Evans' "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men". Possibly the greatest collaboration between an American writer and an American photographer ever. The title is ironic as the subject is The Great Depression, as Agee and Evans saw it in the lives of three sharecropper families in the South in 1936. Many of the photographs that Walker Evans originally selected for the 1940 First Edition were censored for being too depressing, an even greater irony. They were not restored until twenty years later in the 1960 Reissued Edition. The latter is reproduced in its entirety by The Library of America. The volume also includes "A Death In The Family", Agee's autobiographical novel, published for the very first time in the final Corrected Text; the novella, "The Morning Watch", and three short stories. An absolute "must-have" edition for James Agee and Walker Evans collectors. This edition remains available in multiple subsequent printings and is now collectible in its own right. The First Slipcased Edition was distributed to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies were sold to the public. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Slipcased Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Two of the greatest American writer/artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LIBRARY OF AMERICA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1931082812. no.
