About this Item

The first printing of this edition which contains an introduction by Walter Blair which White had not been told about. This entire printing was withdrawn and discarded so that revisions suggested by White could be made. From the library of Harper president Cass Canfield, with an enclosed note from him stating:" This [edition] was withdrawn from circulation because E.B. White objected to the introduction." "Shortly after publication, all the copies of this book were recalled by Harper and Row so that textual changes could be made in Walter Blair's introduction. The first edition of 15,000 copies was scrapped, and 15,000 more copies (with the new introduction) were printed." Hall, p. 78. See "Letters of E.B. White," pp. 513-516. Bookseller Inventory # 29216
