First edition of Lucy Gayheart by Willa Cather.
Small octavo, 231pp. Green cloth, printed title on label. Light toning to cloth at headband, endpapers with faint discoloration from dust jacket. Stated “first edition” on copyright page. Lean to text block, but solid. In publisher’s very good dust jacket, $2.00 on front flap, wear along top edge, bright illustrations and colors. A very good example. (Crane A20.a.i)
