Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings is also the author of the Beloved story The Yearling. That novel was published in 1938 and has become a part of classic American literature. The Sojourner was published in 1953 and it is a wonderful addition to the work of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.This volume is a First edition and it is also a presentation edition. The printing was limited to 600 copies and this is copy #428. It is signed and numbered on the "Presentation Page" directly opposite the half-title page. I have never seen a better copy of this title. The book itself is in Fine condition with no soiling to the boards whatsoever. The text-block is absolutely clean with a tiny bit of toning from age. The binding is tight and this almost looks like a new book. The dustjacket is not price-clipped and the correct price of $3.50 is present. There is a very small bit of shelf-wear to the extreme top of the dustjacket where the jacket turns the corner and becomes the inner flap and also at the bottom of the same area.There is small toning to the rear panel at the top and the spine panel has a tiny bit of shelfwear to the extremities. This is a fabulous copy of an important work of American Fiction. Over all, I would rate this copy as Very Near Fine.A wonderful addition to any serious collector's shelves. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
