[book is clean and tight, with no discernible wear; jacket shows a touch of wear at the extremities, with a couple of tiny chips and some minor creasing along the bottom of the front panel]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the ffep: "Dear Porter: / I hope you'll find / here a start towards / that good writing which / we both love so much. / Always / Henri / July 19, 1934." When Rebecca Starr, "the daughter of the most distinguished novelist in America," gets to New York, "she finds her only weapons with which to wage a fight for recognition are her ignorance, inexperience and ambition." The first novel by this Ohio-born author, who would later become best known for her historical fiction, including a number of books dealing with various aspects of the emancipation of American slaves and the empowerment of women. (This book, interestingly, was published by Henrietta's father, Rae D. Henkle; there is also a letter from him, laid in at the front, dated August 20, 1934, addressed to the book's inscribee, bookseller Porter Welch of the Shaker Book Shop in Cleveland, Ohio; it's a form promotional letter, to which Henkle has appended a personal handwritten postscript; included are the original envelope in which the letter was sent and the mailing label from the package in which the book was sent to Mr. Welch.) But what I really want to know is: did Margaret Mitchell ever see this book and think "that's an interesting title -- I'll bet I can use that...."? Signed by Author
