Midnight Turning Gray
Bristol, Ampersand, (1984). One of Matthiessen's own copies of his first book of short fiction, a collection of stories that date from the Fifties and early Sixties. This is a hardcover copy: printed by a small press at a college in Rhode Island and issued to the trade only in wrappers, a few special copies were bound in hard covers for people involved with the project. Near fine, without dust jacket, as issued. Estimates were that about 10 copies were so bound. Scarce. [#032355] $500
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
