Tickets for a Prayer Wheel [Inscribed Association Copy]
by DILLARD, Annie
(Columbia): University of Missouri Press. (1974). Her first book, a collection of poetry, which begins: "Today I saw a wood duck/ in Tinker Creek." Inscribed by the author to her second husband, prior to their marriage: "For Gary/ from Annie/ February 13, 1976/ Lummi Island." Dillard and Gary Clevidence were married from 1980-1988. "Ex Libris Annie Dillard" bookplate on the half title, which we are told was applied by the author prior to a selection of her books going to auction. Mild foxing to the page edges and thin, flexible cloth boards; near fine in a near fine, spine- and edge-sunned dust jacket. A notable association copy: the book is dedicated to her first husband, Richard, and this copy is inscribed to her second husband, after her divorce but before her second marriage. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032714)
