Out of Africa
NY, Random House, (1938). The first American edition of her second book, a memoir of her life in Kenya that has come to be regarded as a classic -- one of the defining autobiographies of the 20th century. Small ink stamp ("59233") on the rear flyleaf; darkening to pastedowns from the binder's glue, mostly near the hinges; rich top stain. A near fine copy in a very near fine dust jacket with mild tanning to the spine. An attractive copy of a landmark book. [#031373] $750
