About this Item

351pp with index. On the occasion of Cather's 70th birthday, E.K. Brown, then professor of English at the University of Chicago, wrote an appreciation of her work which appeared in the Yale Review. This so appealed to her that a friendly correspondence with Brown ensued, and after her death it was agreed that he would embark on a full-length critical biography. Brown died very unexpectedly at the early age of 45; before he had quite completed what gave every promise of being a work of major stature. Leon Edel stepped in, and working from the very copious notes left by Brown and with the active co-operation of Miss Edith Lewis, Miss Cather's literary executrix and trustee, Edel finished the work. In brilliant green cloth with gilt lettering, with dust jacket. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # ESB10635
