The Folded Leaf
New York: Harper and Brothers. 1945. Second printing. A stain at the bottom of the boards and a label for an out-of-print bookstore on the front pastedown, a fair copy. Warmly Inscribed by Maxwell to his fellow editor at The New Yorker, Rachel MacKenzie: "Rachel dear -- 'Nobody will ever want to read this book,' I said, to myself, I don't know how many times -- a hundred, maybe. And it came very close to ending up in the fireplace. So I am touched at the trouble you went to get this copy. My love, Bill. 1-20-71." MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at The New Yorker on the recommendation of May Sarton. .
