About this Item: Harcourt Brace & Co, New York, 1952. First edition. First edition. A near fine book in a near fine dust jacket. Blue cloth boards. (One of three different colors with no priority.) The dust jacket has some wear and creasing to the rear panel. Jacket clipped slightly at four corners, but price of $3.00 is clearly present. Small ink stain at the bottom edges of the book. Dust jacket shows some restoration to the rear flap seam and spine ends. Minor restoration to the top of the front end paper. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Malamud wrote this while he was a professor at the University of Oregon. The book was the basis for the 1984 movie of the same name that starred Robert Redford and Robert Duvall. But the director, Barry Levinson, gave the movie a much different ending than the book. Seller Inventory # 28276

About this Item: Harcourt Brace and Company, New York, 1952. First edition of the author's first book, and one of the greatest baseball novels of all time. Octavo, original cloth. Advance review copy with the slip laid in for a release date of August 21, 1952. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper one month before the date of publication, "For Susie and Paul Cordially Bern July, 1952." The recipients, Suzanne and Paul Shrag were close friends of Malamud. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Cover art by Simon Goltche. Housed in a custom clamshell box. "Malamud has done something which now that he has done it! looks as if we have been waiting for it all our lives. He has really raised the whole passion and craziness and fanaticism of baseball as a popular spectacle to its ordained place in mythology" (Alfred Kazin). It was the basis for the 1984 film bearing the same name directed by Barry Levinson and starring Robert Redford, Glenn Close, and Robert Duvall. Variety called the film "impeccably made . fable about success and failure in America." James Berardinelli praised The Natural as "[a]rguably the best baseball movie ever made." Sports writer Bill Simmons has argued, "Any 'Best Sports Movies' list that doesn't feature either Hoosiers or The Natural as the No. 1 pick shouldn't even count.". Seller Inventory # 100076

About this Item: Harcourt Brace and Company, New York, 1952. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Spine a little faded, near fine in the gray binding (one of three, with no priority) in a very near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a couple of tiny tears and nominal rubbing. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication: "For Charles Crow. Cordially Bern. July 1952." Crow was a friend of Malamud's from New York, and advised Malamud when he was applying for teaching positions, eventually accepting a position at Oregon State College. Crow's advice to Malamud is quoted in *Bernard Malamud: A Writer's Life* by Philip Maurice Davis. An especially nice copy of the author's first book, perhaps *the* classic baseball novel, and basis for the Barry Levinson film starring Robert Redford, Robert Duvall, Glenn Close, and Kim Basinger.
