Item Description: Covici Friede, New York, 1936. Original Cloth. Book Condition: Good minus. No Jacket. 1st Edition. PUBLISHING DETAILS: True first edition of this rarity, the first of Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck's Dustbowl trilogy, preceding 'Of Mice & Men' and 'The Grapes of Wrath'. Published by Covici Friede of New York in 1936. 349 pages. Size; 21 x 14 cms (8.5" x 5.5"). Weight; 485g (17 ozs). CONDITION: I would rate this as good minus only. The original yellow cloth covers are grimed at the edges and have corner and edge wear (see photo). The binding remains tight and secure throughout. The text shows a degree of toning and soiling to the edges and has some marks and one or two reading library stamps. The prelims have some small edge tears but no stamps. The residues of the dustjacket inner folds remain affixed to the pastedowns. A well-read book, then, but still a presentable true first edition of this important novel. THE NOVEL: In 1936 Steinbeck published the first of what came to be known as his Dustbowl trilogy, which included Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wrath. This first novel tells the story of a fruit pickers' strike in California which is both aided and damaged by the help of "the Party," generally taken to be the Communist Party, although this is never spelled out in the book. Prior to publication, Steinbeck wrote in a letter: "This is the first time I have felt that I could take the time to write and also that I had anything to say to anything except my manuscript book. You remember that I had an idea that I was going to write the autobiography of a Communist. . There lay the trouble. I had planned to write a journalistic account of a strike. But as I thought of it as fiction the thing got bigger and bigger. It couldn't be that. I've been living with this thing for some time now. I don't know how much I have got over, but I have used a small strike in an orchard valley as the symbol of man's eternal, bitter warfare with himself." On publication, New York Times reviewer Fred T. March called it "courageous and desperately honest," "the best labor and strike novel to come out of our contemporary economic and social unrest". In 1958, critic Alfred Kazin referred to 'In Dubious Battle' and 'The Grapes of Wrath' as "his most powerful books". Bookseller Inventory # 001239

Item Description: Covici Friede, NY, 1936. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. A powerful novel of migrant farm workers rising up against landowners. Written at a time when much contemporary fiction was geared toward proletarian aspirations, Steinbeck's novel could have been a mere propaganda piece; instead, it is an exploration of ideals, social protest and social justice, and the relationship of mob behavior to individual values and, as such, still resonates with relevance decades later. Owner signature, cloth dust-soiled and spine-faded, foredge foxed. A good copy only, lacking the rare dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 023624
