Formerly the property of his first wife Vivien Merchant. The Nobel laureate's own copy of one of his first major works. .

        Call It Sleep. A Novel

      Paterson, NJ: Pageant Books, Inc.,, 1960. With a History by Harold U. Ribalow. A Critical Introduction by Maxwell Geismar and a Personal Appreciation by Meyer Levin. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine gilt on black ground. With the dust jacket. Lightly rubbed and dulled at extremities, contents faintly toned. An excellent copy in the rubbed jacket with a few nicks and a closed tear to the fold of the front flap. Inscribed by Roth to the author Elizabeth Jane Howard on the front free endpaper, "To Jane Howard, The pleasure of this brief acquaintance was intense and appreciated, Henry Roth". With Roth&#39;s underlining to several lines on page xvii of the "History" of the book, part of the critical matter added to this edition. Originally published in 1934, Roth&#39;s novel underwent a critical reappraisal when it was rediscovered in the 1960s. The novel was hailed as an overlooked Depression-era masterpiece and classic novel of immigration, and is now widely regarded as a masterpiece of Jewish American literature.

        The Violent Bear it Away

      New York: Farrar, Straus & Cudahy,, 1960. Octavo. Original grey cloth backed red boards, titles to spine in white and grey, black end papers. With the dust jacket. Boards very lightly rubbed, lower corner bumped, head of spine faded, spine a bit rolled, contents slightly toned. A very good copy in the rubbed, toned, and nicked jacket with a few short closed tears and chips to the upper panel and head of the spine panel affecting both sets of titles. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title "For Louis Dollarhide in appreciation &#150; Flannery O&#39;Connor, Millidgeville, April 8, 1960". Inserted is O&#39;Connor&#39;s calling card on which she has written "I took the liberty of correcting the typographical error on page 242, FOC". On page 242 she has crossed out "to" in line 19 and replaced it with "the". Louis Dollarhide was an English professor at the University of Mississippi who supported O&#39;Connor&#39;s work and corresponded with her between 1957 and 1964. There are two binding variants of this edition, and the other presentation copy we have seen was also in red boards as opposed to the normal brown boards, so these may have been advance copies or produced specifically for the author.

G., After this, please don't send me any more books for at least a year; I'm not working for you. Ritual in the Dark has, despite all the advice I gave to Colin, at least 1000 ineptitudes; and, despite all these ineptitudes, is still supremely readable. It renews my youth , and makes me remember the London I once knew - the La Vie Boheme London, the (illegible word) alive London of both 1945 and 1951. It's a very bad novel; but I could read it. And if you don't think this high praise then you know nothing at all abou t me - which indeed you don't, - sentimental old bourgeois that you are - or about any kind of mature writing! John Braine.' An important presentation inscription, John Braine being one of the people Colin Wilson acknowledges along with Victor Gollancz himself on the dedication leaf.
