First edition. Illustrated by Joe Krush. This copy INSCRIBED by Welty on the front endpaper to her good friends Pearl and Willie Spann: "For Willie and Miss Pearl / with lots of love / from Eudora / Christmas, 1953." Welty began writing The Ponder Heart in the late fall and early winter of 1952. In late January 1953 she took a draft to New York. The galley proofs for the New Yorker appearance of this work are dated 20 June 1953, with a projected publication date of "mid-November to mid December 1953." Harcourt Brace records indicate that its setting copy was Welty's corrected galleys of the New Yorker text, which she sent to Eugene Reynal at Harcourt on 8 September (although Robert Giroux had read a copy of a typescript earlier in the summer, writing her on 17 July 1953 how much he liked it). The Harcourt galleys were set September 21-25, 1953, and Welty made some minor revisions, partly at Giroux's suggestion; she returned corrected galleys on 29 September, and Giroux sent her page proofs on 20 October. On 2 November Giroux wrote again sending her photostats of the Krush drawings. On 11 December he sent her copies of the advance sheets so she could see how the drawings were aligned on the printed pages. He told her that bound books were due "next Friday," and on 17 December 1953 he sent her "airmail hot off the griddle today the first copy." The book's official publication date is 7 January 1954. The date of Welty's inscription, in this copy, suggests that it was one of the first copies received from the press, prior to publication. Lower tips bumped, else a nice copy in a clean dust jacket.

4to. Presentation copy from Eudora Welty to her good friend Willie Spann: "To Willie / with love from Eudora." The author's first book for children. When Arturo the Parrot, whose job was to help greet people as they came into The Friendly Shoe Store and who had a quick ear for new words, picked up a small boy's disgruntled comment--"Shoes are for the birds!"--it certainly changed the course of his life! With the author's characteristic insertion of the missing musical stave and lyrics on page 72 (in blue ink).
