Item Description: The Viking Press (1939), New York, 1939. Hardcover. First Edition. Second Printing Before Publication of this winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy belonged to screenwriter Jerry Cady (A WING AND A PRAYER; LAURA; FOREVER AMBER; CALL NORTHSIDE 777) to whom the author has INSCRIBED and SIGNED this book. According to Cady's daughter, the two got into a huge argument at Murphy's bar one night about the book and Cady said that this kind of thing didn't go on in America. Steinbeck then INSCRIBED the book on the dedication page "To Jerry Cady/As far as I know it, this is what happens to them/John Steinbeck." This book shows some evidence that it was carried to Murphy's on more than one occasion. The exterior shows minor edgewear, mostly at the bottom edge. The front endpaper is mostly pasted down to the front pastedown, but what can be seen shows the ink stamp of the Boulevard Circulating Library on Hollywood Blvd. The half-title page has a few small tears, and there is an old dampstain on the outer margin edge of the first few pages, including the dedication page, but not touching the Steinbeck inscription. Accompanying the book are a few pages of Cady's scrapbook that includes family photos and photos of his boat, his driver's license and Twentieth Century Fox ID card, and the 8 November 1948 headline of the LOS ANGELES EXPRESS: "Screen Writer Dies in Mystery." Cady died from an overdose of sleeping pills on his yacht off Catalina Island. He was nominated for an Oscar in 1945 for his screenplay for A WING AND A PRAYER. A beautiful Steinbeck presentation in a Good only copy. Bookseller Inventory # 014780

Item Description: Viking Press, New York, 1939. A splendid copy, bound in finely woven buckram cloth and stamped brightly in brown ink on the front boards and on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout with yellow topstaining. In a complete first edition dust jacket illustrated by Elmer Hader with the original price of $2.75 at the top of the front inside flap and "First Edition" in blue capital letters at the bottom of the flap. With some very light edge-wear and a touch of rubbing to the corners. There is also a small area of dampstain on the verso at the bottom of the spine, but it is not apparent when looking at the richly-colored art work. A superb, collector's copy of this modern classic and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Set during the Great Depression, The Grapes of Wrath focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, and changes in financial and agricultural industries. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they were trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California. Along with thousands of other "Okies", they sought jobs, land, dignity, and a future. The Grapes of Wrath is frequently read in American high school and college literature classes due to its historical context and enduring legacy. A celebrated Hollywood film version, starring Henry Fonda and directed by John Ford, was made in 1940. First Edition with "First Published in April, 1939" on the copyright page and no subsequent printings listed. Bookseller Inventory # 196

Item Description: NY: Viking, (1939), 1939. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition of the great American novel of the American Depression, and the Nobel laureate's magnum opus, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and arguably one of the greatest novels of all time. Basis, of course, for the classic 1940 John Ford Academy Award-winning film. Not a book to hold up terribly well, this copy is simply very good, yet in a much better than very good dust jacket. Not price-clipped, nor bearing the scarce First Edition slug, this copy, bearing the wonderfully pictorial bookplate of famed silent (and sound) screen star Monte Blue, remains exceedingly respectable and presentable.

Item Description: The Viking Press, New York, 1939. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. This is the first printing of the first edition of John Steinbeck’s novel of the great depression of the1930s, THE GRAPES OF WRATH, published in 1939 by the Viking Press in New York. The dust jacket on this book is the original first edition dust jacket, with the “First Edition” slug on the lower corner of the front flap and the original price of $2.75 intact on the top of the same flap. The book itself is in very good to near fine condition. It has no marks within, the binding is tight, there is no chipping, tearing, or creasing of the spine ends, and the image on the covers and spine is fresh and crisp. The dust jacket shows some wear but is fundamentally sound. It is in good to very good condition. The image on the front panel, spine, and back panel is well preserved, and marred only by a few chips and creases where the dust jacket folds onto the front and rear panels. There is also some chipping on the spine ends of the dust jacket, but all the lettering is there. Overall, this is a very good copy of the first edition of The Grapes of Wrath, one of the truly great novels of the 20th Century, with its original first-edition dust jacket.
