Miss MacIntosh, My Darling

New York: Harvest/HBJ, 1979. First printing of the two-volume boxed edition. Two volumes in illustrated slipcase. Perfect-bound octavos in illustrated wraps. xii, 1198pp (1-618, 619-1198). Attractive set of Young's life work, originally conceived of in 1944 as a 200 page book and published nearly twenty years later at six times the length (after cutting half the manuscript's length). Only sporadically in print, the novel has developed a cult following, and this slipcased edition has a reputation for being more easily readable than the gargantuan hardcover or brittle mass market paperback. Very Good or better, both clean, sturdy, and sharp but with creasing and sunning to the spines and remainder marks in black marker to top of text blocks. Carefully read copies both. Slipcase is soiled and edge worn but structurally intact. Item #2284

Price: $150.00
