About this Item

Inscribed and signed on the half-title page: "With best wishes / Sincerely Yours, / Evelyn Scott". Also included is a 2 page, 44 line, typewritten and signed letter to the author Kate Buss, whio had done a review of the book. The frontpaper is signed by Kate Buss. Letter excerpts; "It was most kind of you to write me so sympathetically about Escapade. I wish I had seen your review, and I shall ask Mr. Seltzer to send it me. I'm only a stoic - if at all . so I don't read reviews of my own books, in general. The most conscious portions of Escapade are taken from a notebook I kept at the time, and the latter amplifications only concern the details of the environment. The asterisks had to be put in to please Mr. Sumner, and very nearly resulted in the withdrawal of the book from publication. One portion which was withdrawn expressed, for me, my very decent emotion the first time I nursed my baby. This, I was legally advised, would stimulate the imaginations of small boys. It's amusing, I know, but rather horrible, too, and does outrage your self-esteem.". The book is tightly bound, with well attached covers. Both the darkened spine and the covers have good, unworn edges. Slight discoloration to the back cover. 286 clean pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 16536
