Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title "For Louis Dollarhide in appreciation - Flannery O'Connor, Millidgeville, April 8, 1960". Inserted is O'Connor's calling card on which she has written "I took the liberty of correcting the typographical error on page 242, FOC". On page 242 she has crossed out "to" in line 19 and replaced it with "the". Louis Dollarhide was an English professor at the University of Mississippi who supported O'Connor's work and corresponded with her between 1957 and 1964. There are two binding variants of this edition, and the other presentation copy we have seen was also in red boards as opposed to the normal brown boards, so these may have been advance copies or produced specifically for the author.
