Kincaid, Jamaica (Author) & Fox, Jill (Artist). MY GARDEN (BOOK) : . New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1999. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 229 pages. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's collection of essays on gardening. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A lovely production by Susan Mitchell: Regular-sized volume format. Hard boards with titles on spine, as issued. Text by Jamaica Kincaid. Green-toned Illustrations by Jill Fox. In dominant pale-green pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Jamaica Kincaid has what everyone calls the "green thumb", which is enviable because she also has the literary master's touch. Hence, the title is not as mystifying as it appears at first: The book and the garden are both creations of the author, and she refuses to distinguish or choose between the two. A blooming flower of a book. A "must-have" title for Jamaica Kincaid collectors. This copy is boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the front free endpaper by Jamaica Kincaid. This title had a relatively small print run, is no longer in print as a hardcover, and is now collectible. This copy has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMAICA KINCAID TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374281866. $30.00
