Signed and dated by Thomas Wolfe in 1937 on the front free endpaper. Light rubbing, near fine in the rare original dust jacket which has some professional restoration. American novelist, Thomas Wolfe "made it possible to believe that the stuff of life, with all its awe and mystery and magic, could by some strange alchemy be transmuted to the page" (William Gay). "Look Homeward, Angel is one of the most important novels of my life. . . . It's a wonderful story for any young person burning with literary ambition, but it also speaks to the longings of our whole lives; I'm still moved by Wolfe's ability to convey the human appetite for understanding and experience" (Elizabeth Kostova).

Item Description: New York: Scribner's, 1929. First Edition. First edition of Wolfe's rhapsodic first novel, one of the most lyrical and passionate evocations of coming of age in American literature. An excellent association copy, INSCRIBED by Wolfe to Elaine (Westall Gould) and Harold (Gould), "For Elaine and Harold with friendship and love always, and with especial thanks because they have been among the best friends this book has had. Tom Wolfe. Jan 25, 1930." Elaine Westall was Wolfe's cousin, and the author of an insightful analytical memoir, LOOK BEHIND YOU, THOMAS WOLFE: GHOSTS OF A COMMON TRIBAL HERITAGE (Hicksville: Exposition Press, 1976). Her parents and other members of the family were models for Wolfe's characters: her father, Henry Westall, for example, was the model for both Uncle Bascom in OF TIME AND THE RIVER, and Bascom Hawke, whose portrait Wolfe so memorably painted. The volume is somewhat worn -- about very good -- with a horizontal tear a half-inch below the head of the spine extending about haflway across, and some loss to the gilding on the spine. In a fine facsimile dustwrapper and accompanied by an inscribed copy of Gould's memoir. Both volumes bear the bookplates of the historian Francis Russell, whose affectionate review of Gould's book was published in the Winter 1977 of MODERN AGE. Signed by Author.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1929. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Spine lettering worn but readable, a very good copy in worn, good only first issue dustwrapper (with the Wolfe portrait on the rear panel) lacking the bottom couple inches of the spine, with several other modest chips and tears, and several internal tape repairs. This copy is Inscribed by the author: "To Fidelia E. Stark with warmest thanks. Thomas Wolfe Oct 30, 1929." Also laid in is a four-page carbon manuscript (folded, small breaks at the folds, else near fine), unsigned, but almost certainly by Maxwell Perkins, dated April 17, 1929 entitled "Selling Points: Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe." The "Selling Points," in the third person, recounts the editorial process in detail, and enumerates the literary wonderment of the book. A modern classic, the author's first book, and generally considered his major achievement, a breathtaking autobiographical novel. An inscribed copy, with an intriguing manuscript account of the birth of the novel. Bookseller Inventory # 67103

Item Description: New York: Scribner’s, 1929. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Original black cloth. Light wear to extremities, rear inner hinge broken, else very good. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION. A splendid presentation copy of Wolfe’s first regularly published book, inscribed: “To my sister, Mabel, I present this copy of my first book, with love, and with remembrance of the long way we came together. Thomas Wolfe, Oct 15, 1929.” The publication date was October 18. This autobiographical coming-of-age story is one of the great American novels of the first half of the twentieth century. Look Homeward, Angel‘s treatment of the people of Asheville and his own family led to the author’s estrangement from many in his hometown. Mabel, ten years older than Tom, acted as a surrogate mother for her brother. He wrote of Mabel in a letter in 1925, “She is fierce, tender, angry, biting, caressing, by turns Strong commonplace people drink her vitality like wine The simple and terrific fact is that with all her fuming, fretting, weeping, and love of adulation, I have never seen her do a selfish thing. She has more greatness in her than any woman I’ve ever known. I suppose honestly, that’s why I sometimes get tired of the women I meet.” Mabel closed her boardinghouse and moved to Seattle to care for Wolfe during his final days. She was with him when he died at age thirty-seven. Mabel was the model for Eugene Gant’s older sister Helen in the novel. “Helen a tall thin girl, with large hands and feet, big-boned, generous features, behind which the hysteria of constant excitement lurked. The bond between the girl and her father grew stronger every day ” “Her face was full of heartiness and devotion, sensitive, whole-souled, hurt, bitter, hysterical, but at times transparently radiant and handsome” (Look Homeward, Angel). This is one of the most desirable copies of this classic novel imaginable. Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1511292177392
