Price: $20.00

Quantity: 1 available


A special edition of Theodore Dreiser's novel, first published in 1900. "Sister Carrie" was not promoted by its original publisher (Doubleday, Page) as they felt its frank subject matter made it too controversial. But times changed, and Doubleday issued this 1997 version in an unexpurgated version. With extensive material and an introduction and biographical information about Dreiser at the front of volume. Facsimiles of letters, photos, and illustrations scattered throughout. An entry in publisher's New York Public Library Collector's Edition series. --- In cream paper-covered boards backed in brown cloth with spine titling and illustration stamped in silver. Striped lavender and purple endpapers. Dust jacket with photo of Dreiser to cover. --- A sticker has been carelessly removed from front free endpaper, leaving a scar, but otherwise a clean, bright, tightly-bound copy. Jacket in excellent shape, lacking damages worthy of mention and protected in clear removable mylar wrapper.; 12mo (7 to 7-1/2 in. tall); xxxiv, 585 pages
