Item Description: Sag Harbor, John Steinbeck, 1956, 1956. Sag Harbor, John Steinbeck, 1956, first edition. Although this was originally titled Bourbon on the Rocks, this lot of four items relates to Steinbeck's satirical novel, The Short Reign of Pippin IV, it includes three letters from Steinbeck to Marie Fraioli as well as a carbon copy of his typed manuscript as typed by Fraioli, she had been Elia Kazan's secretary (Kazan and Steinbeck were close because of their association with both East of Eden and Viva Zapata!), Steinbeck hired her to type what he thought would be a long short story, although he also recognized that it was rapidly turning into a short novel, he asks Fraioli for one copy and two carbons (one carbon included here) in the first letter (typed on his Sag Harbor stationery, but signed "John," dated March 14, 1956), he asks how her typing was going on a play that he had also submitted to her and insists on the Bourbon on the Rocks title despite what he had earlier dictated, it is a total of seven paragraphs, 32 lines, the second letter is an autographed letter signed John, saying she had done a wonderful job on his play and hoping that she liked his "Bourbon" story, asking that a carbon go to Kazan, it has two paragraphs, a total of 10 lines, all on ruled yellow paper, the third letter appears to be a carbon (four paragraphs, 19 lines) in which he talks more about his developing story, how it (then) had 22,000 words with another 3,000 to 5,000 more to come, although he notes that it will take considerable rewriting, this letter has a typed signature of one Horace K. Manley, but it is also on his Sag Harbor stationery, together with one of her carbons of the complete (at that time) story that he called Bourbon on the Rocks, a total of 73 pages, all now housed in a custom clamshell case. Essentially fine. Bookseller Inventory # JD29461
