New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1947. Cloth. Cloth a bit flecked at edges, some foxing to endsheets and edges, some occasional dark marginal spotting to early leaves, but a sound copy in heavily worn dust jacket. First Harcourt edition, the text reset from Welty's copy of the British edition. Appropriately inscribed by Welty on the front free endsheet to Lambert Davis of Harcourt: "For Lambert Davis with pleasure & pride in the new dress - Eudora Welty April, 1947." Davis, previously the editor of THE VIRGINIA QUARTERLY (1937-8), served as one of Welty's editors until he left Harcourt in 1948 to head the University of North Carolina Press. He retired in 1970. This new edition was undertaken at his instigation. Review copies of this new edition were sent out on 14 April, formal publication took place on 1 May, and the first printing consisted of 2500 copies. Porter's Introduction was reprinted in this edition, although not noted on the title-page. POLK A2:3.
