About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Biographical Sketch of Pearl S. Buck..

Description:

8vo. Brown wrappers. 28pp.Very good. Faintest of edgewear. A tight and lovely first edition of this early work about the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning American writer and novelist best remembered for "The Good Earth." The notion that this booklet was penned by Buck herself strikes this bibliopole as lacking merit -- not to mention evidence -- as Walsh is cited at the essay's close ("R.J.W.") and was a respected editor and writer. Inside front wrapper bears ownership signature of noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Bookseller Inventory #
