Stegner, Wallace
The Potter's House
Designed and printed by Carroll D. Coleman at The Prairie Press, Muscatine, IA, 1938. 75pp. Octavo [25 cm] Gray cloth with gilt stamped title on backstrip. Ex-library (legitimately discarded), with the usual labels and stamps, as well as evidence of the pocket having been removed on the rear free endpaper. With the exception of the ink stamp on the title page, the text is free of markings, and is printed in black and red, with a bit of blue and magenta. The cloth boards are a bit toned, and the cloth at the ends of the backstrip is slightly frayed. First and only printing. Stegner's uncommon third printed work. Stegner's influence on American writers is enormous. The litany of writers who attended Stegner's acclaimed writing program at Stanford reads like a who's who of American literature: Abbey, Kesey, McMurtry, Gaines, Berry, Carver, Pinsky, Wolfe, Stone, Olsen and others. An uncommon title from the "Dean of Western Writers". Colberg A3. First edition. One in an edition limited to 490. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Ken Sanders Rare Books, ABAA [Salt Lake City, UT, U.S.A.]
