Lot 0081
Title: My Mortal Enemy
Publisher: Knopf
Publication Date: 1926
Binding: Hardcover
Book Condition: Good
Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket
Edition: 1st Edition

This is the Alfred Knopf 1926 publication, noted as the first, second and third printing before publication, of Willa Cather's "My Mortal Enemy" (122 pages), with the cover design and numerous in-page illustrations by W. A. Dwiggins. The cover is sunned to its borders and with shallow edge wear, including bumped outside corners and fraying to the ends of the spine, which is moderately slanted but securely connected to the inside. The front cover's illustration and lettering are unfaded. The inside cover spreads are lightly sunned, and there are recurrent small stains to the pages, though most pages have no notable stains. There are no notations or stamps. The binding is secure, with no loose or missing pages. There is a small bump, at the gutter, to the first group (about 25 pages), apparently from a small object having been left in place (see 2nd and 3rd photos). There is shallow edge wear to a small number of pages, but no significant tears or creases. All the text and the many illustrations are clean and unfaded. Bookseller Inventory # 1143
