About this Item

Original boards, cover and spine labels. A little bit of darkening to the spine, and discoloration of the endpapers, but a fine copy. with what may be the original glassine wrapper. Crane A1.a. First edition of Cather's first book, published at her own expense. Joan Crane, citing American Book Prices Current for 1930, noted a copy of April Twilights with a tipped-in "Literary Note", and concluded, although never seeing it, that it was "an announcement flyer for the book in the form of an advertisement and order form issued by the publisher." In 1997 we discovered what was then the only known surviving example of this note, and identified it as being of Cather's authorship. The note is discussed in David H. Porter's "On the Divide: The Many Lives of Willa Cather." In this copy the "Literary Note" is tipped to the front endpaper, as might be done for a review copy. It may have been done as a press release, as it's the size to fit into an envelope. Bookseller Inventory # 29021
