Collecting tips:

All of the books published during the Florida author's lifetime are desirable, especially jacketed copies of her first book Jonah's Gourd Vine (1934 - don't be upset if the jacket has a red Book-of-the-Month Club sticker, the book and jakcet are otherwise identical), and her best-known work Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937). Her book Mules and Men (1935) is usually less expensive, but is exceptionally uncommon in a fine jacket.
