Dubious Honors.

San Francisco: North Point Press, 1988.

Octavo, 212 pages. First edition. A collection gathered on the occasion of the author's 80th birthday, Dubious Honor features over 32 introductions (to her own books and those by others) on a wide range of subjects, from Japanese cooking to Robert Louis Stevenson. "Marvelously bright (and sometimes biting) ... and to further satisfy her legions of voracious fans, she has written new introductions to the introductions." Text is very good in publisher's maroon cloth. In very good dust jacket.
