"The Tower of the Four Winds" in The Cornhill, Summer 1952
London, John Murray, 1952. Matthiessen's fourth published story, published in this U.K. literary journal while he was living in France and, as best we can tell, never reprinted. This is Matthiessen's own copy, in which he has edited his story contribution, although ultimately these revisions appear nowhere else other than in this copy. The biographical information lists him as working on his first novel at the time of publication. Covers darkened with small stains; very good in wrappers. [#032391] $450
