About this Item

Dated 1930 to both copyright page and bottom of title page; no later dates or printings mentioned. Thus; the first printing of this Pulitzer Prize winner. NO dust jacket. Will close its own text block, but we'll call it "good plus" as the top board corners have worn through the black cloth and there's some fraying to top and bottom of spine. Red titles to spine and front board age-dulled, but still easily legible. Book may once have had a topstain, but color no longer discernible. (Our other first printing shows a maroon topstain.) This copy is complete with endpapers and half-title page. A metallic-backed sticker has been adhered to rear pastedown reading "This Book May Not Be Taken From the Library," but there are NO other signs of library stampings or attachments. Interior text block lovely and unmarked. Author Barnes attended Bryn Mawr College 1903-1907 and served as alumnae director for the school from 1920-1923. Bryn Mawr and characters based on two of its pre-1930 presidents, M. Carey Thomas and Marion Park, feature prominently in this autobiographical novel. The author's manuscripts and some of her papers now reside at the Bryn Mawr Library. This copy bears the previous owner's name "Katharine E. McBride" to FFE, in a forceful script. Katharine Elizabeth McBride (1904-1976) served as the fourth president of Bryn Mawr College, 1942-1970; her copy. We also offer another first printing (lacking its free endpapers) and several later printings, including a signed copy. (This first printing is NOT signed by the author.) 581 pp. Reduced from $5.000.
