First edition, first printing of the author’s first book. Rare in the dust jacket. Enough Rope made Parker’s reputation almost overnight, with The Nation describing her verse as, “caked with a salty humor, rough with splinters of disillusion, and tarred with a bright black authenticity” (Meade, Dorothy Parker, p. 177).

Octavo. Original orange and black marble-patterned boards, black cloth backstrip, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Cloth very lightly rubbed, spine titles dulled, spotting to contents. A very good copy in the rubbed jacket with tanned spine panel and edges, a few nicks and short splits, and a closed tear to the upper spine fold.
