Item #32245 Alexander's Bridge. Willa S. Cather.

Alexander's Bridge

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1912. First edition, second issue (as always, with half-title bound after the title page), of Cather's first novel. Original purple cloth, gilt stamped, with initial "S" on the front cover. A very fine copy in the very rare and fragile typographic dust jacket, split along front hinge fold but intact. The acidic jacket flaps have lightly stained the facing endpapers. This is Crane's jacket "A" issued upon publication on April 20, 1912, and used only briefly. It would shortly - before the end of the month - be replaced by a pictorial jacket. Crane A5.a.i. Item #32245
