The Outward Room
NY, Simon & Schuster, 1937. An advance review copy of the author's first novel. This is the second state, which carries a blurb by Sinclair Lewis on the advance jacket, excerpted in a letter by the publisher explaining that the first 24 pages are tipped in, reflecting changes suggested by Lewis. Spine-cocked; board edges sunned; a very good copy in a very good, dusty dust jacket with modest edge wear. An uncommon format. [#021449] $45
