In the Land of Dreamy Dreams [Inscribed Association Copy]
University of Arkansas Press|~| Fayetteville: University of Arkansas Press. 1981. A review copy of her second book, first book of fiction, a collection of stories. This is the hardcover issue; there were 1000 copies issued in wrappers, but the hardcover is considerably scarcer than that. Inscribed by the author: "When the nights are long I remember my unimportance and I sleep/ Gracias/ Ellen Gilchrist." This copy belonged to Ray Roberts, Gilchrist's editor at Little, Brown, and her inscription and her "thanks" are presumably addressed to him. Beginning with the book after this and continuing for the next two decades, Little, Brown published approximately a dozen books by Gilchrist, including her National Book Award-winning Victory Over Japan. Fine in a fine dust jacket with review slip laid in. An excellent association copy of her uncommon first book. . First Edition. Hardcover.
