NY: Random House. (1959). The second book by one of the other co-founders, with Matthiessen, of The Paris Review. Inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen]: "For Peter - father of this modern novelist -- with fondest regards. H.L. Humes/ Sept. 16, 1959/ New York." Humes and Matthiessen had had a noted falling out in the early days of the Review, but appear to have put it behind them by this time. By the year of this inscription, Matthiessen had had two novels published and was publishing his first book of nonfiction, Wildlife in America. Foxed and musty; very good in a very good dust jacket. A notable association copy. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. (Inventory #: 032484)
