Title Kentucky Is My Land
Edition First Edition

Seller ID 303-3037
Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full russet-brown cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. 95pps. The top section of the ffep has been clipped off, presumably to divorce it from a previous owner's name or inscription (and quite effectively done). This is an unfortunate flaw as the rest of book is in excellent shape: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light edgewear, a bit of chipping at the spine-ends (does not affect lettering), and some sunning in the area of the spine. A considerable tear along the front gutter has been repaired and reinforced with non-acidic archival tape: there is no loss of material to this tear and the flaw is no longer apparent. Though the author was known to be terribly gracious and his pen was about as free as his spirit, this copy is, uncommonly, unsigned . ".Kentucky Is My Land is Jesse Stuart's fervent reaffirmation of his passionate love for the Kentucky land in which he grew up, with its flowers and trees and weathers, and its infinite seasonal variety. Mr. Stuart returns to many of the scenes of his boyhood of which he wrote so eloquently in Man With A Bull-Tongued Plow, now writing of them with overtones of his later life and more mature point of view. While much of the work included in Kentucky Is My Land is frankly autobiographical, a great deal of it is objective. Kentucky Is My Land comprises a collection of poems which will bring joy to the hearts of all true lovers of poetry."
