Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1913.
First edition, first printing. First issue with light yellow-brown vertically ribbed cloth, with the period following "CO" on the spine touching the O. The typographical error "chince-bugs" for "chinch-bugs" is present on page 60, though it is not a point of issue since it persists in all the Houghton Mifflin printings to date as per Joan Crane's 1982 Willa Cather bibliography. Near Fine. Lean to binding with light soiling to spine and rear cover fore edge. Spine ends lightly softened. Previous owner bookplate to front pastedown and pages toned. A beautiful copy, housed in a custom slipcase. Crane A6a.i.(a). Item #140939411
