The Autobiography of My Mother
Garden City, Doubleday, (1976). The uncorrected proof copy of her third book and first novel. Warmly and effusively inscribed by the author two months prior to publication: "____/ How Gerda would love you/ (for your enthusiasm, your vigorous/ devotion)! Whether or not you'd/ want to be loved by Gerda is/ another story)./ But for now I, who made/ Gerda, love you. I hope that's/ sufficient.../ Rosellen." Partial title written on the lower page edges; glue residue showing on front label; very near fine in tall wrappers. A scarce proof, and a nice inscription. [#008060] $200
