        All the King's Men

      New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1946. New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1946. First Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine+/Fine-. First Edition (so stated) of perhaps the greatest American political novel and winner of the 1946 Pulitzer prize. 8vo: [6],464pp. Publisher's maroon cloth, spine lettered in gilt, second state pictorial dust jacket, with Sinclair Lewis blurb moved to rear flap and six reviews on back panel). Better than Near Fine (minor spotting to boards and gutters, spine slightly faded, but lettering legible and strong); about Fine price-clipped jacket, unusually vivid, fresh and bright. Overall an excellent example of an important novel. Grimshaw A7.a1. Time 100. Modern Library 100, 36. & ¶ "More than just a classic political novel, Warren’s tale of power and corruption in the Depression-era South is a sustained meditation on the unforeseen consequences of every human act, the vexing connectedness of all people and the possibility—it’s not much of one—of goodness in a sinful world. Willie Stark, Warren’s lightly disguised version of Huey Long, the onetime Louisiana strongman/governor, begins as a genuine tribune of the people and ends as a murderous populist demagogue. Jack Burden is his press agent, who carries out the boss’s orders, first without objection, then in the face of his own increasingly troubled conscience. And the politics? For Warren, that’s simply the arena most likely to prove that man is a fallen creature. Which it does." (Time 100) Filmed twice, first with Broderick Crawford as Stark in 1949, and again in 2006 with Sean Penn in the starring role. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        THE STRANGER

A Fine copy of the book in a just about Fine dust jacket with niggling wear at the spine ends and front flap fold; one half-inch closed tear on the rear panel without loss. Easily the cleanest copy of this edition that we have come across. & & Camus'; groundbreaking debut novel, first published in French in 1942, follows the story of the emotionally cold and uncaring Meursault, who cryptically shoots and kills an Arab on a beach. This incredibly influential novel is thought to typify Camus'; idea of the absurdness of man';s condition, a theme which runs throughout his works. Camus, of course, would be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, the first African-born winner of the prize. "Camus' brilliantly told story of controlled despair..." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine in about Fine. dust jacket.
