Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy. This copy was presented by the author to the Shoenberg Library of the National Jewish Hospital in Colorado, with a presentation note pasted to the front free endpaper, "This book presented to the patients of The National Jewish Hospital with the compliments of the author", and the library's stamp to the first blank. Previously tipped in, and now loosely inserted, is accompanying typed signed letter from O'Connor to Phillip Houtz, director of the hospital, dated 28 June 1952, informing him that the book would arrive shortly from her publishers. This is the author's landmark first book, the first chapter of which was expanded from her masters thesis. This copy has the scarce first issue jacket, with the 3.00 price and the correct setting of the front flap.
