About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Last Of the Southern Girls (Signed) by Morris, Willie.

Description:

First US edition, first printing of the author's second novel. A near fine book (one lightly tapped corner, and the very commonly found - on this edition - mild offsetting to the front and rear endpages, a reaction of the paper to the flaps. It is straight and tightly bound, with an attractive example of the light purple topstain. The interior is pristine. Signed by the author, in blue ink, on the front end page and also dated by him in the upper right corner: "5/23/73". The date code on the rear flap "5/73" (May, 1973) indicates the book was signed within the month of publication - possibly within the first week or even on the first day - I have not been able to pinpoint as yet the day of publication. Laid in is a slip stating: "This book is sent to you with the compliments of your Random House representative" (Random House was Knopf's distributor by this time). Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1973. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First US edition, first printing. A very good plus (or better) book with the light offsetting to part of the endpages that seems to be so commonly found in this edition and a bit of separation of the textblock from the backstrip (at the upper spine tip) - almost commonly found. Crisp and clean otherwise with the author's signature in blue pen to the front end page. He has also dated and placed the signature in the upper right corner: "Dallas / 5/25/73". The lower rear jacket flap has the date code "5/73" (May, 1973) so this signature is within the month of publication, possibly within the first week. The near fine dustjacket is above average (the foil-like finish of the jacket material is easily creased and damaged, and I have so far never seen a 'perfect' one). This jacket, which is not faded, creased or price-clipped, has very little visible wear except for a small, shallow chip at the lower spine tip (3/4" wide, 1/4" deep) and, nearby a small, semi-circular closed tear (on the rear panel) with a tiny, associated scuff. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 4209

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1973. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First US edition, first printing. A near fine book - crisp, clean black cloth covers with bright gold stamping and four sharp corners. It has mild offsetting to the endpages from the jacket flaps (all copies?) and a slight separation of the textblock at the upper spine tip from the backstrip (something else I have noticed is very common to this edition). It is signed by the author on the front end page in blue ink, and also dated by him in the upper right corner: "5/25/73" - within the month of publication, possibly within the first week. The near fine dustjacket is above average with very little visible wear to note other than two shallow creases on the front flap and one on the rear flap. The jacket is unfaded and unclipped. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 1805
