About this Item

Wylie's remarkable first novel, a minor classic of fantastic romance. Inscribed in the month of publication, "Sinclair Lewis from Elinor Wylie November 1923." A very close literary relationship is here documented. Lewis, it is thought, first brought Wylie's poetry to the attention of Alfred Harcourt, who would become her publisher, and he encouraged her to begin writing prose. In 1923 Wylie married Lewis's friend William Rose Benét. Lewis had high praise for this novel, too, regarding it as an "American phenomenon". Original three quarter cloth with marbled boards, spine dulled, inner hinges cracking, still in decent condition. BAL 23495, printing 1, issue B, with the corrected title page.
