Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1928 - SCARCE FIRST EDITION. Quicksand is a novel about a woman of mixed race heritage, set in 19th century America. It is a work that explores both cross-cultural and interracial themes, and is sometimes included in Women's Studies. Nellallitea "Nella" Larsen (18911964), was an American novelist of the highly influential Harlem Renaissance movement. Orange boards have gilt on front with ink borders. Binding is delicately intact, with some play. Spine is sunned, including gilt. Text and decorations are still clear. Spine ends are crushed, and there is puncture damage above the title. Covers are overall a bit soiled, with some light scrapes and scuffs. Perimeters are dirty with some scuffing, more notable at corners. Front pastedown includes pasted flap from dust jacket, as well as former owner's sig, and multiple "People's Fiction Library" stickers. Front feps are beginning to detach from foot at hinge. Both hinges are cracked along the full length, at the point where the feps meet the text. Back hinge is especially fragile. Interior is free of writing and intentional marks, and is gently tanned throughout. Inside pages exhibit light scattered foxing, with the occasional stain and rare marginal creasing (NOT dog-eared). Page 237 is missing the top corner. Damage does not impinge upon text. Text block edges show some dirt and foxing, with perforations visible along fore edge. Ink along head of text block is faded with light scratching. Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. 302 pages. 5.25 x 7.75 inches.
