The Clock Winder
NY, Knopf, 1972. The uncorrected proof copy of her fourth book, and the first in which she settles her character in Baltimore, where most of her future characters will find their homes. Scarce: this is only the second proof copy we've ever seen, and we've never seen any earlier proofs of hers on the market. Literary agency stamp (of Warren Bayless Agency, rather than of Russell and Volkening, with whom Tyler is usually associated) to half title and final page of text. Spine slanted and creased; some foxing to covers and page edges; still at least very good in wrappers and protected by a custom clamshell case. [#027120] SOLD
