Dance Night

New York: Farrar and Rinehart, 1930.

Price: $4,500.00

Hardcover. First edition. Corner of the front fly a little torn, else a nice, near fine copy lacking the dustwrapper. A pleasing copy of the author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, and considered the finest of her "Ohio" novels. Signed by the author: "Love, Dawn." Powell was a prolific and well-regarded author, but mostly forgotten until a relatively recent and well-deserved revival. For forty years she was a valued jewel of the New York literary world and if you read her books it's easy to see why. Rare, especially signed.
