The Professor's House

New York: Knopf, 1925. First edition. Cloth backed boards, inner hinges expertly strengthened; a very good copy in a decent dust jacket, which has light edge wear, fading and damp marks on the spine. Half morocco case. Inscribed by Cather to Alice Roullier, daughter of an important art dealer in Chicago, and herself chairman of the exhibition committee at the Chicago Arts Club. Cather gave the William Vaughn Moody Lecture at the University of Chicago on Nov. 17, 1925, so it was likely this was the occasion of the inscription. Bookplate of Clifton Waller Barrett. Crane A14.a.i. Item #27867
