One Man's Initiation
London: George, Allen and Unwin, 1920. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. First edition, second state. HANDWRITTEN SIGNED POSTCARD FROM AUTHOR LAID IN. This is the author';s first novel, published in London before the US edition. Based on his experience in WWI, the novel sets the stage for Dos Passos';s Three Soldiers (which brought him international attention). The laid in postcard dated 6/15/59 reads "Shall be delighted to inscribe the book if you';ll send it to me here. Have you tried the Gotham Book Mart ... or one of the big London secondhand book stores - it was published there by Allen & Unwin in 1920 (?). The only copy I have is the Philosophical Library reprint ... Cordial Regards John Dos Passos." The original envelope addressed to John S. Mayfield is also laid in. Very good in blue cloth boards with black title to spine and front board. Fading to spine although the title remains bright. Offsetting to first and last couple of pages and remnants a sticker on the rear pastedown; otherwise the interior is very clean. In very good condition. 128 pages. LIT/051011.
