Goldman, William
The Princess Bride.
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York, 1973. First edition of Goldman's classic novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. Boldly signed by William Goldman in a contemporary hand on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Wendell Minor. An exceptional example. Ross MacDonald praised The Princess Bride as "[a] comic adventure romance which moves all over the world and dances through history.carried off with fantastic inventive energy and lightness, everything converted into pure story.The Princess Bride is a joyous and releasing book." "[Goldman's] swashbuckling fable is nutball funny.a 'classic' medieval melodrama that sounds like all the Saturday serials you ever saw feverishly reworked by the Marx Brothers," said Newsweek. Basis for the 1987 film directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, and starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant and Christopher Guest.
