“ARGUABLY ANDERSON’S STRONGEST COLLECTION”: SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF DEATH IN THE WOODS, 1933
ANDERSON, Sherwood. Death in the Woods and Other Stories. New York: Liveright, (1933). Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. $2200.
First edition of this outstanding short story collection.
“Arguably Anderson’s strongest collection, the volume includes the title work, which Anderson considered his best, and the masterful ‘Brother Death.’ The bankruptcy of the book’s publisher, Liveright, prevented wide distribution, and the volume has never received the attention it deserves” (Chronology of American Literature). Bruccoli & Clark II:19.
Book very nearly fine. Exceptionally rare original dust jacket with expert restoration. A desirable addition to any collection of American classics.
