Mount Morris, Illinois: Woman's World Publishing Co., 1935. First Edition, First Printing. Illustrated Wrappers. A Very Good copy of PATRICIA HIGHSMITH'S DEBUT APPEARANCE IN PRINT, being found in this edition of "Woman's World" Magazine. "Woman's World" focused on matters of interest to women living in the era in which it was published.  However, 1935 was an exceptional year in that it includes the July, 1935 issue which contains the DEBUT APPEARANCE IN PRINT of Patricia Highsmith, being the text of a series of letters the then twelve-year-old Highsmith wrote home during her stay at a girl's camp, which letters she signed "Patsy".  Among other things, the letters, each of which is addressed to "Dear Mother and Dad", mention her particular liking of a girl who rode with her on a boat trip up to the camp, a girl named Marie who "eats like a pig at the table", her gratitude to her parents for the two dollars they sent to her, her meeting the daughter of a girl whose father is a publisher, and going swimming "Diana" with the other girls and the camp counselor "Miss Brownie", adding in a P.S. that: "Diana means without any clothes on at all.  Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?  It's very dark."  A Very Good copy, BEING PATRICIA HIGHSMITH'S DEBUT APPEARANCE IN PRINT.  A SCARCE OR EVEN RARER FIND. Very good. Item #2993
