Limited Issue, one of 185 copies numbered and signed by the author. Octavo; floral patterned paper over boards, quarterbound in textured green cloth with printed spine label in the original publisher's cardboard slipcase; 284pp. Spine is sunned a few shades, else Fine and clean throughout, displaying none of the usual heavy rubbing or splitting to the paper along the edges. The original cardboard slipcase is Very Good, showing moderate wear, bumping, and some splitting at the edges, still retaining the original title label with the corresponding limitation number inked directly below it. The fragile, cheaply manufactured slipcase is seldom seen, and despite the flaws, is still structurally sound and free from restoration. Published simultaneously with the trade edition, 'The Professor's House' was Cather's breakout novel, rapidly outselling any of her previously written books within a matter of months, and ultimately going into eight printings within the year of publication. Crane A14.a.i.
