Book Description (Grace Hoper Press for Roxburghe & Zamorano clubs), Aptos, CA, 1970. Trade Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. [9] leaves. Includes a facsimile of a letter from Steinbeck declining to allow publication of verse he wrote in college and a facsimile of a poem he translated from Ukrainian into a made-up language. Two issues of this book have been identified. The first is in cream-colored wrappers with a cancelled leaf [7] (beginning, 'is a prose passage'). The second issue is in bright white wrappers, with leaf [7] integral and the text matching the cancelled leaf of the first issue. In both case, the facsimile of the Steinbeck letter is tipped in. This pamphlet was issued in an edition of 150 copies. One suspects that the second issue may actually represent a second, unacknowledged printing as the cancelled pages were inserted after binding (based on evidence of a knife cut into the adjacent page in one copy of the first issue seen by this cataloguer). Goldstone and Payne, A45a for first issue; Morrow catalogue 279 for first issue; Holmes catalogue A49a for first issue; Ahearn's Author Price Guide for Steinbeck, noting both issues. First edition (first printing, first issue). A near fine copy in cream wrappers (paperback). Seller Inventory # 94269

Book Description Aptos, California MCMLXX [1970]. "150 printed at the Grace Hoper Press for the joint meeting of the Roxburghe & Zamorano clubs in September 1970"., 1970. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 7 3/4 inches x 11 3/4 in., [12]pp., facsimile of John Steinbeck's 12 April, 1966 letter; title-page in red & black; reproduction of a typed poem in a language created by John Steinbeck for this poem, with reproduction of an inked note: "Translated from the Ukrainian by John Steinbeck"; initial W in red, beginning the introductory note by James D. Hart, regarding the poem; Printer's Note by The Grace Hopers; colophon page in red & black. White, textured paper card covers, with titling in red on the outer front cover, sewn. The outer front cover shows a few, scattered tiny brown spots, bumps to cover corners. From Steinbeck's 1966 letter: "[-]There was a poem written to the Dnieper river by a great Ukrainian writer. It has been translated into every known language. So, some years ago I had to make a language into which to translate it. [-] Sounds good, I think, if read with passion. [-]". The Hart introduction traces some of the Slavic and other language words in the poem, as well as some mention of Steinbeck's own creations. Seller Inventory # ABE-1289595701
