Djuna Barnes' copy, with compliments slip from the author and publisher laid-in, and with two autograph postcards signed ("Peggy") to Djuna Barnes in Paris and London, circa 1936-7, around the time of the writing of Nightwood.
Guggenheim was Barnes's great patron, supporting the author during the writing of Nightwood and continuing to give support, "a sort of permanent if meager Guggenheim fellowship" (Herring, Djuna, pp. xx) for the remainder of her life.
