Amsterdam, Uitgeverij De Harmonie, (1975). The text of McCarthy's 1973 Johan Hizenga Lecture. Small label removal shadow rear cover; very near fine in self-wrappers. McCarthy, the author of such bestselling novels as The Group, was the preeminent female novelist and critic in the U.S. -- the wife, for a time, of Edmund Wilson, and the first U.S. critic to extoll the virtues of William Burroughs' Naked Lunch, when that book was banned in the U.S. [#024572] $70
London, Heinemann, (1952). First U.K. Edition. Good/ no DJ. Ownership signature, some wear to extremities. [#706424] $20
NY, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, (1992). Very Good in Very Good DJ. [#708047] $20
NY, Harcourt, Brace & World, (1967). First person account of the author's trip to Vietnam, which she undertook "looking for material damaging to the American interest," as she explains frankly. Only issued in wrappers in this country, which did not please the author -- who was, at that point in time, a highly praised, award-winning novelist and one of the leading women of letters in this country, and who felt that her work deserved a more formal, elaborate trade publication; she felt, justifiably one would have to say, that issuing the book only in softcover both trivialized it and also made it less likely to receive reviewer attention. Fine. [#010122] $20
NY, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, (1970). An advance excerpt from "Birds of America." Very Good/ no DJ. Minor staining to boards. [#706425] $20
