My Antonia

Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1918. First Edition. Hardcover. An about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, second state with the illustrations printed on text paper. [The first state of the first printing has the illustrations on glossy coated paper. As Willa Cather objected to the glossy paper, the balance of the first printing was printed on the same paper used on the text pages. It is thought that 2,500 copies were printed on coated paper and that only 1,000 copies were printed on the same paper as was used for the text.] This copy is somewhat askew and shows rubbing to the spine ends, board corners, and joints, as well as modest damage to the front board's right side, a notation in pencil to the front free endpaper and another to the rear pastedown in ink, and a brown spot to the upper margin of the latter portion of the pages. As the first printing was not substantial, copies of the first edition, first printing in either state are QUITE UNCOMMON TO SCARCE. An about Very Good copy. QUITE UNCOMMON TO SCARCE. Very good.
