INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the the front endpaper: "For Mrs. Isaacs/with the affection/of one of her/boys/Thornton/Lawrenceville/November/1927."

Isaacs offered much encouragement to Wilder, including recommending that he apply for a Guggenheim Fellowship in order to finish THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY, for which he was declined.

BOOK: is very clean and the sections(signatures) are still very well bound,but the webbing between them is showing at some places, still very secure and held together tightly,other than that appears to be better than the Good+ I rate it.. included is a 9th printing,with its dustjacket which has chips and darken spine,maybe use it to protect the good one.
