About this Item: Picador, New York, 2008. First edition of the re-issue of Tom Wolfe's classic work. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by Wolfe with his characteristic signature on the title page and additionally signed by John Glenn on the half-title page, who was a member of the Mercury Seven. In fine condition. Tom Wolfe began The Right Stuff at a time when it was unfashionable to contemplate American heroism. Nixon had left the White House in disgrace, the nation was reeling from the catastrophe of Vietnam, and in 1979--the year the book appeared--Americans were being held hostage by Iranian militants. Yet it was exactly the anachronistic courage of his subjects that captivated Wolfe. In his foreword, he notes that as late as 1970, almost one in four career Navy pilots died in accidents. "The Right Stuff," he explains, "became a story of why men were willing--willing?--delighted!--to take on such odds in this, an era literary people had long since characterized as the age of the anti-hero." "One of the most romantic and thrilling books ever written about men who put themselves in peril." (The Boston Globe). Listed by Modern Library as one of the top 100 nonfiction works of the twentieth century. Seller Inventory # 1218

About this Item: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1979. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition.

A first edition, first printing, signed not only by Wolfe but by Chuck Yeager and by John Glenn as well. A small closed tear and some bumps to the dust-wrapper, but forgiveable in light of who's held it. (We also have another copy signed just by Wolfe.). Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 200286

About this Item: S.i., N.p., 1983. Draft typescript (4,713 words) on six leaves of white bond, measuring 8.5" x 11". Heavily revised, with the author's holograph notations and corrections throughout in black ink, along with 22 notes by a copyeditor in red pencil. Signed "tw" in type, with "T.W. / August 1983" on terminal leaf. Two old folds smoothed-out, with three leaves scribbed (likely by a child) in pencil, black pen, and red crayon on verso; well-preserved, housed in a custom half-morocco slipcase and chemise. Final typescript of Wolfe's foreword to the 1983 edition of The Right Stuff (first published in 1979), issued to coincide with the theatrical release of Philip Kaufman's film adaptation, starring Ed Harris, Barbara Hershey, Dennis Quaid, and Sam Shepard. In his foreword, Wolfe articulates why he was compelled to embark on the project in the first place: "This book originated with some ordinary curiosity on my part. What is it, I wondered, that makes a man willing to sit up on top of an enormous Roman candle, such as a Redstone, Atlas, Titan, or Saturn rocket, and wait for someone to light the fuse? I decided on the simplest approach possible. I would ask a few astronauts and find out.The Right Stuff became the story of why men were willing---willing?---delighted!---to take on such odds in this, an era literary people had long since characterized as the age of the anti-hero." The book was, and remains, one of the cornerstone works on the subject of spaceflight; a significant working draft of the only new writing Wolfe had done on The Right Stuff since its initial publication in 1979.
