About this Item

8vo, illustrated, original cloth, dust jacket. As new. Price is net to all. First edition. One of 26 lettered hardbound copies signed by Davenport and Williams and Thomas Meyer, out of a total edition of 526 copies printed. Designed by The Grenfell Press & printed by Trifolio, Verona, Italy. "We are not celebrities. No one has known quite what to make of a patrician satirist and lyric poet from Highlands, North Carolina, or of an essayist and short story writer from Anderson, South Carolina." - Guy Davenport. "It is clear that G. Davenport and J. Williams write their letters in the fresh of the morning, when the Wheaties have kicked in, in GD's case, and the peanut-butter-and-mayonnaise sandwich and Coke, in JW's case." - Jonathan Williams. "Here we have two men the perfection of whose craft has been wrought through the practice of letter-writing. . What we have here in particular is onset and blossoming, one of the most distinguished exchanges imaginable unfolding." - Thomas Meyer. Bookseller Inventory # 18806
