A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (First Edition)

by Smith, Betty


New York: Harper and Brothers, 1943. First Edition. First Edition. About Near Fine in a Good dust jacket. Colorful child's bookplate to the front pastedown ("This mine / Merc Relvas"), very slight rumple to the cloth at the rear board, else book is bright and clean. The rare jacket has no major loss, but does have a couple of chips at the crown (affecting the top portion of "TREE" in the title), a chip at the heel, and small chips along the front flap fold amounting to near-separation, with some discreet archival tape mends at the verso. Still, overall, a pleasing copy of a classic American novel.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a classic coming of age story, first published in 1943.  It follows young Francie Nolan, a girl who loves to read and observe the world around her.Like the tree breaking through the concrete to flourish in the scant sunlight, Francie grows and does better than just survive.

Francie stood on tiptoe and stretched her arms wide. "Oh, I want to hold it all!" she cried. "I want to hold the way the night is - cold without wind. And the way the stars are so near and shiny. I want to hold all of it tight until it hollers out, 'Let me go! Let me go!'"
