New York: Rinehart & Company, 1959. Very Good / Very Good. Item #14221

New York: Rinehart & Company, 1959. First Edition, with Rinehart logo to copyright. Octavo; publisher's cloth-backed decorative boards in pictorial dust jacket retaining original price ($3.50); [10],276pp. Moderate wear to jacket extremities, most notably two closed tears at spine crown affecting text without loss of meaning, rather large, faint damp stain to rear panel, textblock uniformly toned due to inferior paper quality, else a Very Good, internally clean and sound copy overall.

Novel of unexpected widowhood and grief by the prolific romance novelist. However, as Stella Suberman notes in a contemporary review titled "How to Read Without Thinking," "Blaze of Sunlight is not intended to stimulate or challenge. It is intended to be a comfortable book, to be put down at the ring of the telephone and to be picked up for the 15 minutes after the dinner pudding has been made and before the baby wakes up"--a pre-Feminine Mystique evaluation if ever there was one.

Price: $50.00
