ON THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF: Short Stories. V. S. Pritchett. ON THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF: Short Stories.
New York: Random House, (1979). First edition. Uncorrected proof in red, printed paperwraps with slip laid in indicating a publication date of November 9, 1979. Handwritten notations on back cover note a few passages in the book as well as Pritchett's telephone number and address. Very good. NOTE: This copy is somewhat of an archive of Quill & Brush cataloging practices and a testament to how long books can languish on our shelves. Laid in is the original, type-written descriptive slip with Q&B logo from our open store in Bethesda, most likely produced circa 1980. And another slip, sans logo, printed from a dot-matrix printer on continuous-form paper, most likely produced in the mid-80's using our old Zenith Heathkit computer. Fast-forward 30 years or so when we no doubt discovered the book had somehow fallen out of inventory and entered it into our present database on 7/14/2010. Hope springs eternal, as they say, as with each iteration we have raised the price.
