NY, Simon & Schuster, (1952). The first American edition of the South African Nobel Prize winner's first book to be published outside of her native country. A collection of stories. Signed by the author. Small, neat owner name on flyleaf, faint edge-sunning; near fine in a near fine, spine-tanned dust jacket with some internal tape strengthening.

(Johannesburg), Ravan Press, (1973). Second issue, with passages by Mandlenkosi Langa censored on pages 54 and 60. Subtitled "Notes on African Writing," with one section on fiction and one on poetry. This copy is signed by the Nobel Prize-winning author. The poet was supposedly issued with a banning order in October, 1973 and the passages quoting him had to be deleted or the issues pulped: later reports say it was actually Langa's brother Benjamin who had been banned. Owner signature on verso of front flyleaf; mild handling to covers; about near fine in wrappers. A fairly uncommon book in either issue, and quite scarce signed. [#026987] $350
