Signed by Rives, "Amelie Rives / Castle Hill / July 20th '92" on FFEP. Minor loss of paper to inside front hinge at lower spine. Rives was a noted Virginia author. She is best known for her "The Quick or the Dead" which was reported to be the best-selling book in New York upon its release. A very attractive copy with an important provenance.
