CATHER, Willa

April Twilights

First edition. Papercovered boards with paper labels on the front board and the spine, issued without dustwrapper. A tiny nick at the crown, spine label a bit darkened, and a small split at the joint, still an at least very good copy. Cather's first book, a vanity press collection of poetry. Cather reportedly destroyed the remainder of the edition in 1908. This copy Inscribed by Cather at a later date: "For Edwin Winter, In return for a beautiful letter he once wrote me about 'My Antonia'. Willa Sibert Cather. Five Bank Street. March 15, 1920." Also laid in is a two-page Autograph Note Signed "Willa Cather," written in pencil, that addresses her attempts to visit her doctor, her inability to make engagements at present, and says in part: "I came home with gout, but I admit it only to old friends. Anyhow, I'm glad I had the Wine in Paris and the gout in New York!" The note is folded, and has a couple of small tears, but is overall very good.
