"IN THE FRONT RANKS OF AMERICAN HISTORICAL NOVELISTS"
RICHTER, Conrad. Brothers of No Kin. New York, 1924.
First edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer's first book, an exceptional presentation copy inscribed by Richter, "For Matt, who has all my books save this callow record of my youth. Of late it has been fortunately scarce and, I am told, sells at a premium. Please read only the first two stories. Had Mitchell Kennerly paid me suitably for the title story probably I should never have slipped and committed the rest which were dashed off by a young man in an effort to get a little extra money into the family till. With my affectionate regard to your Helen, Conrad Richter." $900.
