About this Item

First edition and printing. This copy with a SIGNED typed letter to a friend and associate from the Bread Loaf Conferences with content mentioning this book, Bread Loaf, and visits in Cambridge. 8vo, publisher's original gray cloth boards backed in green cloth and lettered in silver on the spine, in the original pictorially illustrated dustjacket. (x), 340 pp. and 1 page typed letter. A very nice copy of the book, internally fine, the binding well preserved and quite fine too but for some minor wear at the tail of the spine and tearing without loss to the cloth at the head, the cover of the jacket shows very well, though the spine and rear with significant loss. FIRST EDITION, THIS COPY WITH A SIGNED, TYPED, AFFECTIONATE LETTER. The letter, dated January 11, 1950, is too Ms. Virginia "Jinny" Proctor with content signifying both friendship and professional association. Proctor was secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. The letter makes mention of visits to Cambridge. Proctor and Guthrie were also associated for some time with the Bread Loaf Conferences in Middlebury, Vermont. Bread Loaf is considered one of America's most valuable literary institutions and Guthrie makes note that he "had the post-Bread Loaf blues." He also makes mention of being busy "trying to hack out a piece of non-fiction." Most closely associated with the book offered here, the copy from the collection of Ms. Virginia Proctor, is Guthrie's stating, "I'm glad your liked 'The Way West.' I worked so hard on it last winter. it is good, always, to know that friends have enjoyed it.Very best, Jinny. Next time I see Cambridge, I'll see you. Affectionately,.".
