Stated First Edition; A Fine book in the very rare acetate jacket. SIGNED, dated, and inscribed by the author to the front free paper. A beautiful copy of this collection of lectures Ms. Stein was planning for US universities upon her return from Paris; the lectures give critiques of many of her celebrity friends including Picasso, Cezanne, Sherwood Anderson, and of course Ernest Hemingway. Scarce in the first edition with the jacket and in this condition, rare indeed signed by Stein.
This copy is in Fine condition with a square, tight binding, bright spine lettering and a sharp, crisp photo of Stein to the front board, and clean, white pages throughout; the book does show a slight over opening to the first few pages and moderate foxing to the rear free paper and paste down. Housed in a clean and bright good to very good acetate jacket that is split at the spine and the front flap but is still intact and otherwise sharp. A magnificent example of this title, made all the more desirable by Stein's signature and having the original acetate jacket.
