Charlottesville, VA: Alderman Library- University of Virginia, 1980. First Edition. Signed by the author Eudora Welty next to her printed name on page 8 where her 22 page essay, and the longest piece in the booklet, “The House of Willa Cather” begins. Welty’s chapter is full of respect and praise for the work of Cather, as evidenced in part with this quote from My Anonia: “More than anything else I felt motion in the landscape; in the fresh, easy-blowing morning wind, and in the earth itself, as if the shaggy grass were a sort of loose hide, and underneath it herds of wild buffalo were galloping, galloping...” and continues with Welty’s observations: “All Willa Cather’s prose, like this passage in My Antonia, speaks of the world in a way to show it’s alive. There is a quality of animation that seems naturally come by, that seems born part of every novel. Her own living world is around us as we read, present to us through our eyes and ears and touch.” Also contains contributions by Alfred Knopf and Yehudi Menuhin. Illustrated. Paperbound. Very fine copy in printed covers. (Inventory #: 20901E)
