Steinbeck dedicated this book to Pascal Covici, his longtime publisher and friend, who has inscribed the book to Bob Silver, the sales director at Viking Press, just under the dedication. Covici signed Steinbeck to his original company, Covici-Friede, and convinced Steinbeck to follow him to Viking Press in 1938. The two maintained a close professional and friendly relationship throughout both of their lives. This novel was the basis for the 1955 Kazan film starring James Dean, Raymond Massey, and Julie Harris which won Jo Van Fleet the 1956 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. 1952

        The Natural

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1952. First edition. His first novel. A contemporary (dated 1952) signed and inscribed presentation copy. Fine in red cloth, one of 3 colors with no priority. The dustjacket has a 1/4" tear, and a crease to the rear flap, else the jacket's also fine. Specifically, The Natural is a baseball novel set in the 1930s, but it's really a Gothic novel taken out into the sunshine and set between the chalk lines. Its primary theme is the tragic flaw, while its minor themes touch a succession of juxtapositions including, choices and consequences, morality and responsibility, and rise and fall. Woven through the plotline is a symbolic myth of initiation and isolation, drawing from models of lore as distant as Chrétien de Troyes' Sir Percival (the original Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail), and as near as T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, and so it is a knight's tale of betrayal, lost virtue, redemption, and extinction, a chilling read, that's dark, deep, leveled, literate, mythological, supernatural, and profound. Generally, it's a reminder that novels are a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of secret charm, and of thought in cold storage, a small object that fills an immensity. Novels are, no less than, the history of everything that didn't happen (Book Code). Fine / Fine.

        Charlotte's Web

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1952 - First Edition. Large 12mo. In dustjacket. Tan fabric binding with blue and black, webbed lettering design to front cover and spine. Beautiful, blue endpapers. Illustrations by Garth Williams. A novel about the story of apignamed Wilbur and his friendship with abarn spidernamed Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising Wilbur (such as Some Pig) in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live. Written in White's dry, low-key manner,Charlotte's Webis considered a classic of children's literature, enjoyable to adults as well as children. The description of the experience of swinging on a rope swing at the farm is an often cited example of rhythm in writing, as the pace of the sentences reflects the motion of the swing. In 2000,Publishers Weeklylisted the book as the best-selling children's paperback of all time. Good dustjacket and covers with Very Good interior. Minor sunning and ripping to dustjacket. Minor soiling to covers. Binding tight and textblock clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Natural

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1952. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. 1st edition of his first book. Red cloth (one of 3 bindings with no priority), a fine copy, in a fine dustjacket (no nicks, tears or fading). Superficially, The Natural is a baseball novel set in the 1930s, but it's really a Gothic novel taken out into the sunshine and set between the chalk lines. Its themes touch a succession of juxtapositions including, choices and consequences, morality and responsibility, and, of course, rise and fall. Woven through the plotline is a symbolic myth of initiation and isolation, drawing from models of lore as distant as Chrétien de Troyes' Sir Percival (the original Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail), and as near as T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, as well as numerous others (some even earlier than the former, some even later than the latter). Malamud's motif is the tragic flaw, and the symbols galore accent birds (including Harriet Bird, the woman in black), water (rain, drowning), the vegetative cycle of spring (including Iris Lemon, who's name was changed to Gaines in the movie), trains (the book opens with Roy's train emerging from a tunnel, his rebirth at the age of 19), and the field (the playing field is The Waste Land), dry and parched when Roy arrives, but after his first hit, rain falls for 3 days and turns the field a vibrant green. And then there is his bat, Wonderboy, an Excalibur forged in lightning.

This is thought to be caused by printing problems, and one does not take precedence over the other as a first edition point of issue."[I added the underline]

        Dial 'M' for Murder.

      New York, October 1952. Playbill printed on silk, mounted and framed at the time (visible surface c 35 x 14.5 cm) for for the pre-Broadway opening night of Knott's play at the Shubert Theatre, Washington, D.C., on 13 October 1952, signed by five members of the production, the director Milton Shubert, Anthony Dawson, Gusti Huber, Richard Derr, and the associate producer Emmett Rogers. This crime drama was turned into a 3-D film by Alfred Hitchcock and released in 1954 after Knott had adapted his stage play for the film version. Was that the evening described by Thomas A. Bogar in the book American Presidents Attend the Theatre? 'The Gayety began its new season in September as the Sam S. Shubert Theater, under the personel management of Milton Shubert, sporting completely refurbished dressing rooms and a house to accommodate 1530 patrons. At Margaret's [president Harry S. Truman's daughter, author of murder mysteries and actress] urging the Truman's attended another pre-Broadway show there in October, Frederick Knott's Dial 'M' for Murder ... Her friend Maurice Evans played the thriller's lead ... [His] primary recollection of the evening was the presence everywhere of Secret Service agents. The First Family apeared to enjoy themselves thoroughly, and backstage afterward were generous "gracious and enthusiastic comments", inviting the cast to the White House later in the week' (p. 299). Provenance: This souvenir of the production was given by Knott to his fiancée at that time, the dedicatee of his published edition, "Muriel".

        C'est le diable."

      - Signed drawing by the highly influential French writer and philosopher known as a key figure in existentialism, dedicated to Michelle Vian, one of his long-term mistresses.  Sartre has drawn the amusing caricature sketch in ink on a paper napkin, dedicated it to Michelle [Vian], signed, and dated July 25, 1952. Beside the drawing he has written: " 'C'est le diable,' dit la jeune personne qui se promenait nerveusement dans son cosy corner." (" 'It's the devil,' said the young person who walked nervously in his cozy corner.")  Slight toning and rough edges; otherwise in very good condition.  18 x 30 cm. Matted and framed under UV-Plexi.Michelle Vian, the wife of French writer and polymath Boris Vian, met Sartre in 1946 and was divorced from her husband in 1951.  Her relationship with Sartre was rocky: she had three abortions and once attempted suicide.  Nevertheless, she remained close to him until his death in 1980, and was the recipient of many of his manuscripts.

        Alfred A. Knopf at 60

      Privately printed (designed by W.A. Dwiggins), [No place] 1952 - First edition. Fine in fine original unprinted acetate dustwrapper in about fine cardboard slipcase. One of 250 copies. A festschrift volume celebrating Knopf's 60th birthday with essays by Dwiggins, H.L. Mencken, B.W. Huebsch, John Hersey, and others. This copy Signed by Mencken and dated by him in 1952, in his post-stroke hand. Mencken had suffered a stroke in 1948 which left him largely incapacitated, and very few, if any, other copies of this title signed by him exist (in an online search we could find only one other post-1948 book signed by him offered for sale - that book published in early 1949). Rare thus. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
