About this Item: First Edition Library, Shelton, CT. The facsimile of the first printing of the Houghton Mifflin edition from 1959. Signed by Philip Roth on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket with slipcase which is in fine condition. Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin, he of poor Newark, she of suburban Short Hills, who meet one summer break and dive into an affair that is as much about social class and suspicion as it is about love. The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender and that illuminate the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora. Saul Bellow wrote upon review of Goodbye, Columbus, "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr. Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic and performs like a virtuoso." It was the basis for the 1969 film starring Richard Benjamin and Ali MacGraw, directed by Larry Peerce. The screenplay, by Arnold Schulman, won the Writers Guild of America Award. Seller Inventory # 155

About this Item: New York City, NY: The Library Of America, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 913 pages. Published in 2005. Volume One of The Library of America's definitive Collected Works of Philip Roth. The First Slipcased Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a Slipcased Edition for distribution to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies was sold to the public. The Slipcased Edition has the same ISBN as the regular trade edition. The Slipcased Edition is now rare. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant, each volume is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Each volume is scrupulously edited and annotated by Ross Miller. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Volume One of The Collected Works of Philip Roth. The two books that inaugurated the author's long, productive, and stupendous literary career. "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr. Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic, and performs like a virtuoso" (Saul Bellow). "One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" (Cynthia Ozick). "Our foremost novelist since Faulkner" (Harold Bloom). Philip Roth was only the third writer to be so honored by The Library of America while still alive. Published in chronological order, the entire oeuvre consists of ten volumes in all and will surely be regarded as one of the "high spots" in The Library of America Series. Roth famously announced in 2012 that he has permanently stopped writing. Philip Roth died on May 22, 2018 of congestive heart failure, literally of heartbreak, at the age of 85. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy of Volume One is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a late-modern classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First "Library of America" Slipcased Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The First Slipcased Edition was distributed to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies was sold to the public. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, have the bookstore's stamp, or are subsequent printings yet command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. "Goodbye, Columbus" won the National Book Award in 1959, the first of numerous major awards the writer has received. Six of Philip Roth's novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1931082790. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 18497

About this Item: Andre Deutsch, London, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Andre Deutsch, London 1959. 157 pages. 1st edition, 1st printing. An incredibly rare association copy. Before the legendary Herb Jaffe ran United Artists (film company) he ran a small boutique literary agency in NYC, Herb Jaffe Associates. In 1959, Herb Jaffe signed a promising young talent named Philip Roth. A short time later, a monumental piece of literary history was created and published: Goodbye, Columbus. Roth, who has long been short-listed for the Nobel prize began his prolific journey with Herb Jaffe Associates (Jaffe would also be responsible for signing a young Joseph Heller amongst others). Offered for sale is Philip Roth's 1st book, a 1959 1st edition, 1st printing with the rare ownership and provenance stamp of Herb Jaffe's agency on the FFEP. As an added bonus, a signed bookplate by Philip Roth is laid in (not attached). The bright and desirable illustrated DJ is beautiful. The DJ would grade fine if not for 1 or 2 tiny closed chips to edge of backstrip, a random faint mark on upper front of DJ and most minor soiling to rear of DJ. 10s6d net price intact on DJ flap (rear). The blue cloth of the book is in slightly lesser condition than the DJ as there are a couple of scuffs to the blue cloth on front panel with slight toning to edges and lightened color along the backstrip. Lightest rubbing at corners. An incredibly rare copy with associated significance!. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 000714

About this Item: Andre Deutsch, London, 1959. First British edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Philip Roth on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Adrian Bailey. A very sharp example. Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin, he of poor Newark, she of suburban Short Hills, who meet one summer break and dive into an affair that is as much about social class and suspicion as it is about love. The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender and that illuminate the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora. Saul Bellow wrote upon review of Goodbye, Columbus, "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr. Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic and performs like a virtuoso." It was the basis for the 1969 film starring Richard Benjamin and Ali MacGraw, directed by Larry Peerce. The screenplay, by Arnold Schulman, won the Writers Guild of America Award. Seller Inventory # 170
