About this Item

The rare limited issue, one of 35 unnumbered copies issued with all edges untrimmed, signed in full "Willa Sibert Cather" on the front free endpaper. Original green cloth, spine has small areas of spotting where the green pigment is lost; number in ink on upper cover; ownership signature at the bottom of the front endpaper, (James R. Messenger, Emmy Award-winning documentary film maker, and sometime contributor to the Willa Cather Newsletter). A very good copy preserved in a clamshell box. As these copies are taller than the trade issue, and special binding cases had to be made, it's unlikely they were issued in dust jacket. Youth and the Bright Medusa was the first of Cather's books to be published by Knopf, who would remain her publisher thereafter. Bookseller Inventory # 29203
