Mount Morris, Illinois: Woman's World Publishing Co., 1935. First Edition, First Printing. Illustrated Wrappers. A COMPLETE SET of 12 monthly issues (in the original wrappers) of Woman's World magazine for the year 1935 -- containing all 12 issues -- each of which was sent to the same subscriber (whose name and address are stamped on each issue). With the exception of the issue for December, 1935 (which has a small section of loss to the bottom outer corner of the cover and of the first three leaves) the set is otherwise in Very Good + or better condition and being (with the exception of some scattered spotting/foxing) rather bright and tight. "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 a work by 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+ or better set of all the monthly Woman's World magazines for the year 1935, each of which was sent to the same subscriber (and which set has been kept together since December, 1935), BEING PATRICIA HIGHSMITH'S DEBUT APPEARANCE IN PRINT.
