Signed and inscribed on the front free end page, "For Elaine Clouse, Sincerely, Thomas Wolfe, June 13, 1938." Autographic condition: fine, with some professional restoration present (to remove ink blotting) but all writing original. Book condition: VG/VG, with a touch of edge wear and a few small tears to jacket, loose front hinge, and subtle, even toning to interior. The consignor notes that Clouse was a Portland schoolteacher and avid admirer of Wolfe.
