The Second Tree from the Corner
NY, Harper & Brothers, (1962). First thus, the Harper's Modern Classics edition, inscribed by White to his wife: "With love to my modern classical wife/ KSW from EBW." E.B. White and Katharine White were both highly literary authors: Katharine White was both a writer and, for 35 years, the fiction editor of The New Yorker, beginning a few months after the magazine's founding. E.B. White was hired in 1927 and for years wrote "The Talk of the Town" columns, which were published anonymously, as well as contributing his own credited essays. As such, the two represent one of the great American literary couples of the 20th century, and one of the most influential, by virtue of the impact each of them had on The New Yorker, which became the preeminent standard of literary taste and sophistication. This is a collection of White's essays, stories and poems, originally published in 1954, two years after the enormous success of Charlotte's Web. Near fine, without dust jacket. The best possible association copy of this book. [#033506] SOLD
