One of Ours. Willa Cather.

One of Ours

New York: Knopf, 1922. First edition, first printing, limited issue. Original white vellum, gilt, ribbon marker. Minor dust-soiling to spine, but a fine copy. Copy 10 of 35 copies printed on Imperial Japan Vellum, signed on the colophon by Cather, five of which were not for sale. One of the rarest of Cather issues, in point of actual number produced. This copy is additionally signed by Cather on the front endpaper, and a note laid in from Cather scholar Robert Thacker advises that he and fellow scholars Richard Harris (editor of "One of Ours" for The Willa Cather Scholarly Edition) and Mark Madigan consider the second signature evidence that this was Cather's own copy. "One of Ours" won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Crane A11.a.i. Item #32257
