Journey Down

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 5.5 x 8 inches. [x] + 305 pp. Fine in original lime green cloth decorated and lettered blue and black on the upper cover and the spine and in an almost fine dust jacket just a touch sunned at the spine. Item #33303

One of 700 copies signed by Aline Bernstein on the colophon page. Laid in are two related pieces of promotional ephemera: a two-page 1938 Memorandum from Mr. Knopf to friends of Borzoi Books; and a four-page piece on Aline Bernstein. "A narrative of the relationship between a lovely, sensitive woman and a young writer [Thomas Wolfe] which conveys the ecstasy and the pain of love so beautifully that there is no contemporary book with which it can be compared." An uncommonly nice copy.
