At Play in the Fields of the Lord
NY, Random House, (1965). Matthiessen's own copy of the advance reading copy of his fourth novel, marked by Matthiessen, apparently for a reading. A portion of an index card has page numbers written in Matthiessen's hand, identifying five sections that are marked off, by Matthiessen, spanning the entire text: the opening paragraphs; three middle sections; and the final pages. Otherwise unmarked, but from Matthiessen's library. Foxing to endpages and page edges; spine creased; very good in wrappers. [#032341] $500
