Collecting tips:

First editions of three of Anne Tyler's first four books are scarce and expensive in fine condition: the first, If Morning Ever Comes (1964), the second, The Tin Can Tree (1965), and the fourth, The Clock Winder (1972). Which is the scarcest is the subject of modest debate, with our money on The Clock Winder. For some reason her third book, A Slipping-Down Life (1970) is relatively common when it has a handwritten "R" remainder mark on the front endpaper, but without the mark it too is scarce. One wild card is a little limited edition, A Visit with Eudora Welty (1980) which reprints an interview with Welty that originally appeared in The New York Times Book Review. This was purportedly was issued in an edition of 100 copies, but our experience suggests the real number might be two or three times that number.
