New York: New Yorker, 1948. First edition. First appearance of Jackson's best-known story, "The Lottery," the publication of which prompted hundreds of letters and subscription cancellations from outraged readers. Collected the following year in the book of the same name. Good to very good in pictorial paperwraps with staining to top edge front cover affecting top edge first two pages, small chip to upper rear cover, staples showing rusting, and innermost leaf detached but present. Quite scarce.
