About this Item: McGraw-Hill, New York, 1950. Cloth. Rice, Stanley (illustrator). First Edition. [1950]. Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full brown cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 262pps. There is light rubbing to the spine-ends, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has a slightly sunned spine and shallow chipping at the extremities; the original price is intact. An excellent, collector's-quality copy. ".In 'Clearing in the Sky,' Jesse Stuart -- poet, short-story writer, and novelist of the Kentucky hills -- presents twenty-one colorful, entertaining sagas of the backwoods country. Greenup County, the locale of the stories, is a sort of place where a good hound dog is worth more than an automobile and barn dances draw bigger crowds than movies. The mud roads of the section are impassable in spring, and an occasional wildcat still roams the woods. If a man is a shrewd horse trader and his tobacco leaves are large and golden, he is a hill-country success. Home in Greenup County is a one or two-room log shack, usually smaller than the barn. When a feud springs up in the district, the opposing families bury their dead at night so as to deprive the enemy clan of any satisfaction. The vigor of Jesse Stuart's prose, the authoritative ring of his dialogue, and the natural humor which lights up his philosophy make 'Clearing in the Sky' delightful and heart-warming reading."

About this Item: The letter notes his college classmate and fellow Mountain Regionalist writer James Hill had visited him and said the addressee (probably the Progressive Farmer) was about to accept more stories. The story he tentatively named "The Man Ahead of us." was later printed with the editor changing it to "The Man Ahead of You." After giving some more information about Hill, Stuart notes two stories he has sent the publisher. He goes on to note it has been a rough summer that he was confined due to a heart blockage which his doctor called a "silent attack", he is now able to write. He wrote his last work flat on his back with a pencil since the ink wouldn't flow upside down. Nicely inscribed. Seller Inventory # 016801

There is a crease in the front pastedown (a slight production flaw) and the binding is slightly shaken, though sound, with slim separations between a couple of signatures (more a cosmetic than a structural issue): otherwise clean, square, and bright.

The original price is intact. SIGNED and generically inscribed by the author 'with all good wishes' on the ffep. ".'Kentucky Is My Land' is Jesse Stuart's fervent reaffirmation of his passionate love for the Kentucky land in which he grew up, with its flowers and trees and weathers, and its infinite seasonal variety. Mr. Stuart returns to many of the scenes of his boyhood of which he wrote so eloquently in 'Man With A Bull-Tongued Plow', now writing of them with overtones of his later life and more mature point of view. While much of the work included in 'Kentucky Is My Land' is frankly autobiographical, a great deal of it is objective. 'Kentucky Is My Land' comprises a collection of poems which will bring joy to the hearts of all true lovers of poetry."

About this Item: Personal, 1952. Letter. Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket. 0 4to 11" - 13" tall; Jesse Hilton Stuart. TLS to journalist Deane Morrison. Reads, "Mr. Morrison Your mentioning my ‘Esquire’ stories brings back old memories. So many people around here dind’t like them either. But our drugstore sold them, and it wasn’t an uncommon sight to see a man slip in and buy one, as if he were a little ashamed, and put it under his arm and walk out. Even the papers went after me over a few stories. So I would stay away, not see many people, until a story ‘had died down. ’ That is, read and partly forgotten " Dated "Riverton, Ky. Nov. 12th, 1952." Signed "Jesse Stuart. " [2] leaves, single-sided. 11 1/8" x 7 3/8". Very good with original envelope. Jesse Stuart (1906-1984) achieved prominence with his short stories, poetry, and novels. Born and raised in Greenup County, KY, Stuart relied heavily on the rural locale of northeastern Kentucky for his writing. He said that most of his stories were elaborations of true incidents that he observed or heard about. His plots and dialogue give a stereotypical view of the region. He was made poet laureate of Kentucky in 1954, and in 1961 received the award from the American Academy of Poets. His first novel was "Trees of Heaven" (1940). Stuart's "Taps for Private Tussie" (1943) sold over a million copies in only 2 years, and won the Thomas Jefferson Southern Award for the best Southern book of the year. A fairly uncommon signature. ; Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 33527

About this Item: E.P. Dutton & Company, Inc., New York, 1943. Full Terra Cotta Cloth. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good (unclipped). Thomas Hart Benton (illustrator). First Edition Stated. This 303 page wonderfully illustrated by Thomas Hart Benton First Edition Stated, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The binding is full Terra Cotta Maroon and it is rock solid, tight and clean asd a whistle, AAA all the way. Totally unbumped. The unclipped jacket has done its job well; the book is excellent but the DJ has substantial edge chipping. Winner of the 1943 Thomas Jefferson Southern Award, this offering details how teenage Sid Tussie sees big changes in his poor Kentucky family when they receive $10,000 insurance money for the death of his uncle in World War II and other greedy relatives scramble to share the wealth. Jess Stuart looks alternately dispassionately and passionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED.

The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has shallow chipping at the extremities and a slight tape-repair at the upper front tip. This is an association copy, SIGNED and inscribed thus on the ffep: 'To Jack, with love and Christmas greetings from Dadie and with best wishes from a close friend to your parents -- Jesse Stuart, Christmas 1975. Jack, this book has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.' Edited and with an Introduction by J. R. LeMaster. ".Jesse Stuart began his writing career in the unsettled decade of the twenties. America had emerged from World War I restless and rootless. To some, technology offered light at the end of the tunnel. There was an impatient tide away from farms and into urban centers. But, as the editor of this collection notes, 'There have always been those in our midst who have doubted the wisdom of abandoning life on the land in favor of life in the city, of abandoning man's right relation to the land, his place in nature.' Jesse Stuart was one of these. This collection recognizes that the poet's journey is through space as well as time. He is a fluid self, keeping a record of his ever-changing identity. At first, as seen here, he examines himself, then the life around him on his farm, then, in widening circles, Kentucky, Appalachia, all of America, the world. At last he seeks in the universe an encompassing brotherhood of man. The universal harmony he finds brings him back to his farm, where such harmony has always been."
