From Here to Eternity
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1951 - 861 pages. Octavo (8 1/2" x 6") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Inscribed by the author. First printing, with 'A' on copyright page, first issue jacket with authors photo on rear panel rather than reviews found on later issue jackets. Jones' first book, basis for the 1953 film starring Montgomery Clift, Burt Lancaster, and Frank Sinatra. From Here to Eternity is the debut novel of American author James Jones, published by Scribner's in 1951. It is loosely based on Jones' experiences in the pre-World War II Hawaiian Division's 27th Infantry and the unit in which he served, Company E ("The Boxing Company"). Fellow company member Hal Gould said that while the novel was based on the company, including some depictions of actual persons, the characters are fictional and both the harsh conditions and described events are inventions. From Here to Eternity won the National Book Award and was named one of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library Board. There were three screen adaptations. Condition: Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. A stamp on the front free endpaper reading "Book No" with the number 1035 in holograph but this is the trade edition not the "Presentation Edition".
