Angels Can't Do Better

New York: Coward-McCann, (1944).

Price: $500.00

Hardcover. First edition. Near fine lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to a colleague at *Poetry* magazine, Geraldine Udell, in what is almost certainly a contemporary inscription: "For Geraldine: Here I am a young man in a dry month – Love, Pete." De Vries's uncommon third book, a novel published during wartime, and very difficult to find inscribed.
