About this Item

First Printing, First Issue, with poorly printed grey initial letters at start of each chapter and no reviews on jacket's back panel. 8vo: [8],341,[1]pp. Publisher's mottled blue cloth, spine stamped in silver, upper board titled in blind, top edge stained blue (lightly faded); illustrated dust jacket priced at $5.75. Signed by Bellow on the front fly leaf (as usual). Laid in is a First Edition Circle bookmark, from Kroch's & Brentano's in Chicago, announcing this copy as a "first edition autographed by the author." About Fine (and probably unread) in about Fine jacket, the spine panel lightly toned. The author's sixth book, winner of the National Book Award. "Herzog is a massive intellectual accomplishment that has repeatedly been likened to Joyce's Ulysses. It remains Bellow's acknowledged masterwork . . . Bellow wrote Herzog while in Puerto Rico, New York, and Chicago dealing with yet another marital catastrophe. At its heart is Bellow's profound shock at learning that his friend, Jack Ludwig, had cuckolded him. The last of their circle to know he had been deceived, Bellow lapsed into deep depression and produced Moses Herzog, an intensely self-justifying hero who, like himself, was tearful, cuckolded, and precipitated into intellectual and spiritual crisis by the failure of his marriage."
