About This Item

New York: Dial Press, 1971. First printing. 134 pp., 5.5 x 8.75 inches. Perfect-bound in printed card covers, with printed dust-jacket. Drawings by Don Bolognese. Uncorrected galleys for this early young adult title, published the same year as the author’s Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. The book is set on a sharecropper plantation much like the one where Gaines was born. Slight sunning to edges of card covers, otherwise a very good copy; laid into a very good example of the dust-jacket, with some rubbing and a date in orange grease-pencil on the front flap (very likely the date of receipt for review). An uncommon title, in a very scarce advance state.

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance.
