FIRST EDITION OF WRIGHT’S MA CINDERELLA
WRIGHT, Harold Bell. Ma Cinderella. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1932. Octavo, original maroon ribbed cloth, lettered in gilt. $450.
First edition of this tale of the Ozarks, emphasizing “the superiority of the rugged natural man” (Hart, 849).
“Though it had been many years since Harold Bell Wright lived in the Ozarks, he returns in this story to the settings that sold so many books for him in earlier years. From his refusal to sell the movie rights to Ma Cinderella for a low price, it is clear that he thought of this as one of his better stories” (Gerry Chudleigh). Bruccoli & Clark, II:396.
An about-fine copy.
