About This Item

New York: Farrar, Straus and Co., 1948. First edition. Her first book. Loosely based on her childhood in an affluent California neighborhood. Very good to near fine with the usual darkening of the pages (due to the high pulp paper used during and after WWII), small tear near hinge of half-title page mended with archival tape on verso, hint of sticker shadow on verso front endpaper, and two small damp stains to page edges not extending to pages. Spine and covers quite bright and fine. In very good or better dust jacket with few tiny chips, internal archival-tape mends to two thumb-nail tears (spine and front flap fold), and spine and flap edges a bit tanned. From the collection of sports writer Paul "Dr. Z" Zimmerman with his penciled notations on rear endpaper.
