About this Item

Later printing. Cloth, near very good. James Jones' copy with his ownership signature on the front pastedown. After Jones' success with FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, he helped found, along with his then lover, Lowney Turner Handy, the Handy Writer's Colony in Marshall, Illinois. This copy bears the bookplate of Lowney Handy, and she has written her name in ink under Jones' signature. Jones has marked the poems with his characteristic "J" and in one poem, "Portrait By a Neighbor," Jones has written in pencil "This is Lowney." An interesting association item. Rare thus.
