About this Item: Doubleday & Company, Inc, Garden City, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. A 1958 letter on Doubleday & Company letterhead requesting permission from Flannery O'Connor to reprint her story "A View of the Woods" in the Prize Stories 1959, edited by Paul Engle. Despite the letter twice referring to her as "Mr. [Flannery] O'Connor," she signs and dates at the bottom of the letter. It is possible she herself is responsible for pointing out that error by correcting her mailing address to "Miss" Flannery O'Connor. Accompanying the letter is a Fine, price-clipped first edition of the collection in which the story was reprinted. Seller Inventory # 3832

About this Item: Limited Editions Club, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. O Connor s shivery story set in the mid 20th century South that the celebrated artist, Benny Andrews, knew all too well. The two lived only thirty miles from one another, but worlds and worlds apart, in Georgia farm country. Why he chose this book, this author, he will tell you in his brilliant Afterword. The white O Connor flourished within the system. Andrews, a son of black sharecroppers, flourished in spite of it. Imagine. School, for him, was permitted only when it was too wet to work the fields. High school was a four-mile walk each way. With only determination, wit, desperation and genius he cobbled together scholarships for college. His passion, vision and talent have earned a place for his art in all major New York museums, including the august Metropolitan Museum. Six color etchings by Benny Andrews. Edition limited to 300 numbered copies. Each book signed by Benny Andrews. Peter Pettengill made the plates and editioned the prints at his Wingate Studios in New Hampshire. Red Japanese linen, the color of Georgia clay, covers the hand-sewn, hand-bound books and the hinged and lined cases. One volume, 17 x 22 inches. Print portfolios are also available. As the publisher, we unconditionally guarantee that all books are authentic and the condition is As New (NOS). Signed by Illustrator(s). Seller Inventory # ABE-1555168881247

About this Item: New York: Farrar, Strauss and Cudahy, 1961, 1961. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine in black, top edge dyed green. With the dust jacket. Slightly rubbed and faded along edges, spotting and partial toning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with faded spine panel and a few short closed tears. First edition, first printing. Signed by O'Connor on the first page of her introduction and inscribed on the front free endpaper by Monsignor Dodwell, who baptised Mary Ann and was involved in her care, "May Mary Ann bless and smile on the Coles who were so good to her, Monsignor Dodwell". Also inscribed by a third hand, "Prayers, Sr. M. David O. P.". O'Connor was contacted by the nuns of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home in Atlanta after the death of their remarkable patient Mary Ann Long, who had been diagnosed with a terminal cancer on her face as a toddler, but lived to the age of twelve under their care. The nuns wanted to tell Mary Ann's story, and suggested that O'Connor write a novel based on her life. But O'Connor, as she explains in the introduction, thought it better that the nuns write the real story themselves. Loosely inserted is an original photograph of Mary Ann in her first Communion dress, showing the tumour affecting her face. Signed material of any type by O'Connor is rare, particularly so in the last years before her death in 1964. A poignant association given the author's own serious, long-term illness and Roman Catholic faith. Seller Inventory # 83250

About this Item: Harcourt Brace, New York, 1952. First edition. Yellow boards, with a 3/4 inch chip at top of spine,otherwise very good, without dust jacket. Presentation copy to Reynolds and Jean Allen, dated May 1952. On May 14,1942,almost exactlya decade prior to the book's publication, Reynolds Allen beat Flannery O'Connor out for the top prize in a statewide essay writing contest, receiving a full four-year scholarship to any Georgia college of his choosing; O'Connor won second place and was awarded $10. Both were aspiring writers, and had been friendly enough as classmates at Peabody High School that they once went on a double date (O'Connor's date was Dick Allen, Reynolds's cousin). When she moved back to Georgia in 1950, O'Connor helped to edit some of Allen's mystery stories, none of which appear to have been published. Allen, who attended Emory University, became a lifelong banker and a prominent Milledgeville business man. He remained friendly with O'Connor until her death, and is occasionally cited in biographical sources. The Milledgeville library, Georgia State College for Women, and several local socialites held "autograph parties" for O'Connor when Wise Blood was published on May 15, 1952, much to her distaste ("Around here if you publish the number of whiskers on the local pigs, everybody has to give you a tea," she complained to Robie Macauley at the time (Gooch 209)), and it is likely that the Allens received their copy at one of these. Nevertheless, inscribed copies of the notoriously cheaply-bound novel are relatively uncommon in the trade. Yellow cloth stamped in grey. In good only condition, with a coffee-colored stain and approx. 3/4" loss to crown of spine, small pinkish stain to head of front endpapers, and gutter break at half-title and rear terminals. Otherwise clean internally, with a clear inscription.8-1/4" x 5-3/4". 232 pp. Seller Inventory # 32164

About this Item: New York: Farrar, Straus & Cudahy, 1960, 1960. Octavo. Original grey cloth backed red boards, titles to spine in white and grey, black end papers. With the dust jacket. Boards very lightly rubbed, lower corner bumped, head of spine faded, spine a bit rolled, contents slightly toned. A very good copy in the rubbed, toned, and nicked jacket with a few short closed tears and chips to the upper panel and head of the spine panel affecting both sets of titles. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title "For Louis Dollarhide in appreciation - Flannery O'Connor, Millidgeville, April 8, 1960". Inserted is O'Connor's calling card on which she has written "I took the liberty of correcting the typographical error on page 242, FOC". On page 242 she has crossed out "to" in line 19 and replaced it with "the". Louis Dollarhide was an English professor at the University of Mississippi who supported O'Connor's work and corresponded with her between 1957 and 1964. There are two binding variants of this edition, and the other presentation copy we have seen was also in red boards as opposed to the normal brown boards, so these may have been advance copies or produced specifically for the author.

About this Item: Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, 1952. First edition of O'Connor's powerful first novel. Octavo, original cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to her editor, "For Robie --- Flannery." Robie Macauley was an American editor, novelist and critic whose literary career spanned more than 50 years. In 1966, Macauley became the Fiction Editor at Playboy where he published fiction by Saul Bellow, Roald Dahl, Nadine Gordimer, John Irving, Doris Lessing, Vladimir Nabokov, and Kurt Vonnegut among many others. In 1978 he became a Senior Editor at Houghton Mifflin where he was responsible for publishing The Mosquito Coast, The Marrakesh One-Two, Shoeless Joe, and several works of nonfiction. Near fine in a good first issue dust jacket with some wear to the front panel and crown of the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association. Assembled from disparate stories first published in Mademoiselle, Sewanee Review and Partisan Review, Flannery O'Connor's first novel, Wise Blood, has come to be appreciated as a work of "low comedy and high seriousness". Themes of redemption, racism, sexism, and isolation are prevalent throughout the novel which O'Connor stated was about "freedom, free will, life and death, and the inevitability of belief.".
