About this Item: Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge, 1986. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. After publishing three novels in the late Sixties and early Seventies, Burke went 15 years without having a novel published in hardcover, until LSU -- which had recently had great critical and commercial success publishing John Kennedy Toole's posthumous, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel A Confederacy of Dunces -- published this. Critical reception was immediate and extremely positive, and the following year Burke had the first book in his award-winning Dave Robicheaux mystery series published by a major New York publisher. It can rightly be said that this was his breakthrough book. Signed by the author. Fine in a very near fine dust jacket with just a hint of wear to the spine extremities. Seller Inventory # 912963

About this Item: Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 1980. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Second printing. An excellent copy of the book, Near Fine or perhaps a little better with a light splash-mark on the top-edge of the page block, otherwise in excellent shape. With a Very Good, first state dust jacket with some small chips at the top of the spine and with the titling quite faded, as is common with this book. Signed by Walker Percy on the title page.A major work of American literature, the novel depicts the satirical adventures of Ignatius J. Reilly as he saunters around New Orleans, looking for work and railing against modern culture. The book was written in the early 1960s, but wasn't published until 1980, 11 years after Toole's suicide, when the author's mother took the manuscript to Walker Percy and essentially forced him to read it. "There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained-that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther? In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good." Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1981. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 1675

About this Item: Grove Press Inc, New York, 1981. Paperback. Condition: Good. First Thus. First Black Cat edition (B-452), stated first printing. Paperback with cover painting by Sanjulian and design by Peter Morance. 18 × 10.5cm, 415pp + 1pp ad. Signed by the author's mother to the half-title, "May 3, 1981 - Appreciation and Regards from John Kennedy Toole's Mother, Thelma Ducoing Toole, to Dear Peter and Margaret Watson". A monument to sloth, rant and contempt, a behemoth of fat, flatulence and furious suspicion of anything modern - this is Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, noble crusader against a world of dunces. The ordinary folk of New Orleans seem to think he is unhinged. Ignatius ignores them, heaving his vast bulk through the city's fleshpots in a noble crusade against vice, modernity and ignorance. But his momma has a nasty surprise in store for him: Ignatius must get a job. Undaunted, he uses his new-found employment to further his mission - and now he has a pirate costume and a hot-dog cart to do it with. John Kennedy Toole's cult novel wasn't published until ten years after his suicide, and only then after the persistent efforts of his mother Thelma Ducoing Toole who finally persuaded the author Walker Percy to read it. Percy recognised a cult classic and it soon received the recognition it deserved winning the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981. Condition: This paperback copy has creased covers and some browning to the text. It is in basically good shape, the front cover having creases and folds to all edges, and some corner curling. The spine is creased where read, and the back cover has some creasing but to a lesser extent. The inner binding is secure with no loose pages. Thelma Ducoing Toole's inscription is clear and in very good order. A very scarce title to find signed in any capacity. Signed. Seller Inventory # 006324

Foreword by Walker Percy. Fine in near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket illustration by Ed Lindlof. A very nice example, uncommon signed.

"A masterwork . . . the novel astonishes with its inventiveness . . . it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue" (The New York Times Book Review). The book's passage to success began in 1976 when John Kennedy Toole's mother Thelma, using a walker, hobbled into the office of the novelist Walker Percy at Loyola University. She was followed by a chauffeur carrying a manuscript that she told Mr. Percy was a ''masterpiece.'' Percy agreed to read it. He became entranced and decided that the novel was ''a major achievement, a huge comic-satiric-tragic one-of-a-kind rendering of life in New Orleans.'' After some more publishers rejected the book, Louisiana State University Press agreed to take a chance with a first printing of just 2,500 copies. It sold about 50,000 copies in hard cover and nearly 600,000 in paperback within three years of publication. Seller Inventory # 63038

About this Item: Louisiana State University Press, 1981. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. BOLDLY SIGNED WITH A LARGE INSCRIPTION BY JOHN KENNEDY TOOLE'S MOTHER (THELMA TOOLE) BY JOHN KENNEDY TOOLE Louisiana State University Press, 1981 First Edition, Sixth Printing: Important Signed with a large personal inscription by John Kennedy Toole's mother as: "Sept. 2, 1981 Appreciation and regards from John Kennedy Toole's mother, Thelma Ducoing Toole, to the Dedicated Wives of LSU's Medical Faculty". The incredible story behind the publication of this amazing Pulitzer Prize winning novel is quite unique: A Confederacy of Dunces was a posthumously published novel that was the first work of fiction published by the LSU Press: and which had a very small first printing (reportedly 2500 copies), Initially the book was rejected by dozens of publishers and the author committed suicide in 1969. Years later the author's mother brought the manuscript to Walker Percy, insisting that he read it. Percy overcame his initial hesitations and championed the book, arranging for its publication and contributing an introduction. Ultimately it long deserving acknowledgment for excellence, reviews and word of mouth led to its becoming a best-seller, and it won the Pulitzer Prize. (For this obvious reason one will never find this book ever signed by the author), however the person who was instrumental is having the book published and recognized was John's mother, albeit after her son's death -- but at least his wonderful novel made the mark in literature that John would have always dreamed of. A Confederacy of Dunces is considered a comic-satiric-tragic and one of a kind rendering of life in New Orleans. First Edition, Sixth Printing: Near fine crisp, clean book with a very good plus dust jacket. The book is in beautiful condition, with crisp beige boards with strong unfaded titles. The book has sharp corners and a tight and square binding. The internal pages are clean, bright and flat with No marks, No writing, No stains, No smudges, No bent pages and No foxing. Beautiful clean book internally appearing as unread. Important boldly large inscription by by John Kennedy Toole's mother who was the catalyst to making this book published long after the death of her son and author of the novel. The original slightly nicked and rubbed dust jacket is in very good condition and is not price clipped and has the stated price of $12.95. The jacket is now protected in a new clear removable archival cover. Please see detailed images. A incredible, scarce example of this title! ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
