All Night Long
NY, Duell, Sloan and Pearce, . The uncorrected proof copy of this novel, by the author of Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre, among others. Inscribed by Caldwell to Stuart Wright, a publisher, bibliographer, and Caldwell collector. This "novel of guerrilla warfare in Russia," was written after Caldwell's time as a foreign correspondent in Ukraine. 283 pages, printed on rectos only; string-tied in plain wrappers, with the title hand-written (faintly) on the cover. Mild foxing to page edges and slight dustiness to covers; still near fine. An unusual format for a proof, and probably issued in very small numbers -- a couple of dozen copies seems like the upper end estimate for this wartime printing. [#034764] $450
