        Gravity's Rainbow.

      The Viking Press, New York 1973 - First edition of the author's National Book Award-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Herb Yellin- Regards, Thomas Pynchon." The recipient Herb Yellin, was the publisher and founder of Lord John Press, considered by many to be one of the most important small presses of the 20th century. He formed a friendship with the author Thomas Pynchon. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some light wear to the extremities and a closed tear to the rear panel. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Books signed and inscribed by Pynchon are one of the great rarities of twentieth century literature. "Gravity's Rainbow is one of the few truly great novels of the century, and at the same time one of the most disappointing, disturbing, maddening. One of the most original fictive styles to have been developed since Joyce" (Contemporary Novelists, 1136). It is regarded by many scholars as the greatest American novel published after the end of the second world war, and is "often considered as the postmodern novel, redefining both postmodernism and the novel in general" (Pohllman). Time named it one of its "All-Time 100 Greatest Novels", a list of the best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Notes on actor Rip Torn (Original manuscript essay, with corrections)

      N.p., N.p. 1973 - Seven-page manuscript, executed in holograph pencil with numerous corrections. An early rough draft of an essay by Southern regarding his first encounter with actor Rip Torn, which, oddly, is more an encounter with the concept of Rip Torn than Rip Torn himself (though Torn would ultimately become one of Southern's closest friends and confidants). The piece was ultimately published as "One of the Real.ah.Originals" in the April 1973 issue of Saturday Review of the Arts.With reference to his involvement in "The Cincinnati Kid" during Sam Peckinpah's brief tenure with same, Southern describes a meeting with the film's producer, the producer still reeling from Peckinpah's acrimonious departure (Norman Jewison would ultimately take the directorial reigns). The bulk of the essay details how Southern wrote a new scene in the midst of the change, introducing what would become Torn's character, Slade, a "gentleman" card shark. Full provenance available on request.Lined notebook paper, rectos only, 8.5 x 11 inches. Near Fine.
