SCARCE SIGNED FIRST PRINTING in a BRIGHT DUSTJACKET. About FOREVER AMBER (from Wikipedia): ******When it was published in 1944, Forever Amber was condemned it for its blatant sexual references. Fourteen US states banned the book as pornography. The first was Massachusetts, whose attorney general cited 70 references to sexual intercourse, 39 illegitimate pregnancies, 7 abortions, and 10 descriptions of women undressing in front of men, as reasons for banning the novel. The book was condemned by the Catholic Church for indecency. In 1945 the book was banned in Australia. The Minister for Customs, Senator Keane, said: The Almighty did not give people eyes to read that rubbish. Partly as a result of being banned and condemned Forever Amber was the BEST SELLING U.S. NOVEL of the 1940s. It sold over 100,000 copies in its first week of release, and went on to sell over three million copies. Within a month of its publication the movie rights had been purchased by Twentieth Century Fox. The film, Forever Amber, was directed by Otto Preminger and released ty 20th Century Fox in 1947. Forever Amber was responsible for popularizing Amber as a given name for girls.****** About KATHLEEN WINSOR (from Wikipedia): ****** Kathleen Winsor, b. 1919 d. 2003, was an American author. She is best known for her first work, the 1944 romantic novel Forever Amber. The novel, racy for its time, became a runaway bestseller even as it drew criticism from some authorities for its depictions of sexuality. Winsor wrote seven other novels, none of which matched the success of her debut.******. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 001899

About this Item: 1944. WINSOR, Kathleen. FOREVER AMBER. NY: The Macmillan Company, 1944. 8vo., green cloth in dust jacket; 972 pages. First Edition, first printing (so stated). Adapted into a successful 1948 movie, the 972-page novel was edited down to one-fifth of the manuscript Winsor originally presented to the publisher. Condemned for blatant sexual references, 14 states banned the book as pornography. Despite its ban, "Forever Amber" was the best-selling U.S. novel of the 1940s, selling more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release and eventually selling more than three million. Signed by Winsor on verso of the front endpaper. I have also noted two variant dust jackets but I have little information to offer about them. This dust jacket, which is uncommonly fragile, is entirely printed in blue- both text & the photograph on the rear cover. It is my experience that this is the more uncommon dust jacket but, if it is the earliest one, I do not know. Very Good (little wear covers; contents clean & tight); some wear & chipping (one-inch chip base of spine; $3.00 price is present but lower corner of front flap is clipped) d/j. $750.00.

About this Item: New York: Macmillan, 1944, 1944. First Edition. Very good or better in dust jacket. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author to her then-husband Artie Shaw, 'To Artie - in case you finish this and want some explanation - Dryden once said that Ôthey who live to please must please to live.' Kay. Los Angeles, October 15, 1946.' Winsor divorced her first husband and married Shaw ten days later, divorcing in 1948. This novel was an enormous success, selling three million copies, and was adapted into a successful film in 1948. Considered racy for its day, this reputation and its sales were no doubt enhanced by being banned by the Massachusetts Attorney General. She was not the most famous of Shaw's many wives: Ava Gardner and Lana Turner were better known; Jerome Kern's daughter was wealthier. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Seller Inventory # 27387
