The remarkable, illustrated story of the discovery and first appearance of Emily Dickinson's extraordinary poetry, which led to a complex human drama that brought this work to an abrupt close--as related by the daughter of Emily Dickson's editor.
An essential book for lovers of ED: " . . . but truth like ancestors' brocades / can stand alone."
Our copy is stated as a "First Edition" with BOTH the necessary Harper & Brothers' letter [month-year] and number codes present.
Condition: ABOVE AVERAGE: internally tight, bright, & clean; the cover has a slight bump lower right corner. The dust jacket is a bit worn with slight wear to its extremities and a few clean nicks though a ~ 1" piece has been lost at the upper left edge of the front panel (see pictures). For a war-era dust jacket, this jacket is considerably better than average.
