Description: 8vo, cloth backed boards, d.w. New York: Knopf, (1961). First Edition.

Comments: Third printing, September, 1961. Presentation copy " For Jean Stafford Leibling and A.J. Leibling, with heart's gratitude..." Percy's first published novel and his best work. Stafford, one of the judges of the National Book Award, was believed to be largely responsible for his winning. Her husband urged her to read this first novel that had appeared with barely a ripple, and which was competing with Catch 22. The dust wrapper is worn at the edges, but is not price-clipped. A wonderful association copy.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
