New York: Alfred A. Knopf / G.P. Putnam's Sons / William B. Ewert / Orchard Books, 1972. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First editions. Each (except Digging to America) signed without inscription by author on title page. The Clock Winder: board edges a bit faded, two tiny spots on top page ridge. Back When We Were Grownups includes publisher's newsletter (laid in). Your Place is Empty: 2 inch tear to base of glassine jacket spine. 1972 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. An impressive collection of novels by the Pulitzer Prize winning author, comprising all published works released from 1972 to 2006 (and thus missing her first three, and last four, works), as well as her two juvenile titles. Your Place is Empty is also of particular interest, being an imprint of the William B. Ewert fine press in Concord, New Hampshire. With the exception of Digging to America, they are all signed by Anne Tyler directly on the title pages - no small feat considering that, until recently, the author did not make public appearances or grant interviews. Even sending items to her for the purpose of obtaining signatures was a complicated process, as illustrated in the four postcards and three greeting cards included here, in which Tyler requests they be sent such that she can receive them without leaving her home. The original recipient of these also sent the author a number of gifts, for which she expresses thanks in her correspondence.
