Fernhurst, Q.E.D. and Other Early Writings by Gertrude Stein
Fernhurst, Q.E.D. and other early writings
New York: Liveright, 1971.
First American edition.
Fernhurst, a fictional episode based on a Bryn Mawr scandal of the early 1900s, explores the labyrinth of love between man and woman and between woman and woman; Q.E.D. fictionalizes an early Stein romance (doomed finally by a rival); and the third selection is an early draft of The Making of Americans, which records Stein's struggle toward maturity as woman and artist.
One of 4000 copies. A perfect example, fresh and unfaded.
As New in fine dust-jacket.
