Original limited edition untitled b/w photographic print numbered and SIGNED BY EUDORA WELTY presented unframed in its original undecorated gray paper folder. Full sheet dimensions: H 27.75cm x L 35.25cm with light creases to top corners within margins and not affecting the image itself. Image dimensions: H 22cm x L 30.5cm. Image shows multiple figures all with backs toward camera so that they are facing activities on a town square; left foreground of one man in hat standing upright within shade of tall shrub at right foreground with one foot resting on a small sign "Keep off Grass;" center foreground has three watermelon halves, contents consumed, on ground with four men, all in the shrub's shade and wearing white shirts with suspenders, of which three are seated and the fourth resting upon his side. Background features houses and cars as well as small crowd with the individuals' collective attention focused on some out-of-view activity at the far right. This specific image does not appear in any of Welty's books but is similar to one on page 72 of ONE TIME, ONE PLACE (Random House, 1971) which is titled "Watermelon on the Courthouse grounds - Pontotoc." Welty's pencil signature is at the bottom right margin immediately underneath the image and, likewise at the bottom left margin, is a hand-numbered pencil limitation of 9/400. Such numbering precludes the image's inclusion within the ninety sets of TWENTY PHOTOGRAPHS (Palaemon Press, 1980) and the sixty sets of THE EUDORA WELTY PORTFOLIO (Diogenes Editions, 1992). A near fine print with the aforementioned minor faults of slightly creased top corners which, of course, would not be visible after archival matting and framing. Bookseller Inventory #
