Book Description New Directions, [New York], 1954. Softcover. First edition. Signature and conjugate pages plus title leaf. Title leaf, 20p. (paginated as in the book). Fine. Prints the separate story "The Kingdom of Earth," prepared for insertion into copies of *Hard Candy: A Book of Stories* in order to complete the private, limited edition of 100 copies (and a few for presentation). Stated one of 100 copies. Because of its provocative content (a tubercular dandy dies while his ex-prostitute wife and his Cherokee half-brother ignore his pleas for help and instead have passionate sex in the next room), Williams was advised to remove the story from the collection *Hard Candy*. It did appear in much later collections, and he later adapted the story into both a play of the same name, and ultimately the longer play *The Seven Descents of Myrtle* (in which the half-brother is African-American rather than Native American). Rare. Bookseller Inventory # 337569

Book Description New Directions, 1954. First Edition. THE KINGDOM OF EARTH WITH HARD CANDY A BOOK OF STORIES, New Directions, 1954, first edition, very fine in just about fine publishers slip-case with some professional restoration to the spine of the slip-case. Of allegedly 100 SIGNED copies, this is copy #9 with numbered copies seemingly showing up less frequently than presentation copies. This title story was not included in the original simultaneous publication entitled HARD CANDY A BOOK OF STORIES. The actual number of copies extant is unknown. Apparently, the authors scarcest book to locate in first edition. Bookseller Inventory # 10074
