Notes Author's 1st book, written when she was 22. 1st Edition stated and 1st printing (of around 4000 copies) in a 1st issue dustjacket with 10/64 at bottom of front flap and priced at $4.95. Laid into the book is a Near Fine+ (very few signs of having been mailed) small sealed envelope stamped and postmarked 1989 in Minneapolis MN. A small printed article about Ms. Tyler's career is pasted on the left front side, a very small address label to NJ lower right corner, and the author has SIGNED her name to the envelope between the article and the address label. The book is Fine: unread, very tight and straight with no edgewear or soiling, the publisher's upper page edge stain is fine, and the gilt spine lettering is bright and complete though of a rather glittery variety instead of today's flat, even gilt painting. The cloth at the top of the book's spine is just a tiny bit flexible but not limp or crushed. The Near Fine+ price intact dustjacket is clean, crisp, has none of the usual spine fading or dulling, with no chips or soiling. It has 2 tiny closed edge tears (upper and lower front panel near the spine) that have been sealed on the reverse side, and a sharpened pencil-tip sized light tan spot lower rear, near the outer edge. ; 8-1/4" x 5-3/4"; 266 pages; Signed by Author
