Description: 71 pages, red cloth, d.w. New York: Harper & Brothers, (1960). First Edition. Fine.

Comments: Inscribed on the half title: " For Hortense and Curt, WRITERS ! But more than that, and before that, warm and many- layered human beings." Laid in is a holograph note to Hortense (Calisher), about 70 words expressing her admiration "....I admire your own language so much that I feel stricken dumb in your presence....all gurgle-tongued and bobbled-eyed....aware ...that you, standing there, are the possessor of the word that means one thing...". The notepaper has offset on the end-leaves, on which Brooks has inexplicably written and then crossed out " From Gwendolyn to Gwendolyn"
