Im Band "Jenseits von Eden" von Markus Lüpertz nummeriert und signiert, Umschlagentwurf und Vorsatzillustrationen von Markus Lüpertz. 5 Bände in Holzkassette. In einer grün lackierten Holz-Kassette ausgeliefert, wurde der Reprint der fünf Steinbeck-Bände mit Umschlägen des Künstlers Markus Lüpertz versehen. Markus Lüpertz (* 25. April 1941 in Reichenberg, Deutsches Reich) ist ein deutscher Maler, Grafiker und Bildhauer. Er zählt zu den bekanntesten deutschen Künstlern der Gegenwart. Seine Bildgegenstände zeichnen sich durch suggestive Kraft und archaische Monumentalität aus. Lüpertz dringt darauf, den Darstellungsgegenstand mit einer archetypischen Aussage seines Daseins festzuhalten. Viele seiner Werke werden dem Neoexpressionismus zugeschrieben. Von 1988 bis 2009 war Lüpertz Rektor an der Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. In der Öffentlichkeit stilisiert er sich als exzentrischen Maler, der seinen eigenen Geniekult betreibt.

Item Description: Covici-Friede, New York, 1935. Hardcover. First edition. This is a magnificent jacketed and inscribed copy of the first edition of Steinbeck’s breakout novel, housed in a quarter-leather clamshell case. The inscription, inked in two lines on the front free endpaper, reads: "For Roger a Safford | John Steinbeck". Note that "Roger a" is speculation, as this portion of the inscription is difficult to decipher. This copy approaches fine condition in a near fine dust jacket and by virtue of condition alone is a noteworthy example. Inscribed, it is a prize. The tan cloth binding remains square, tight, and sharp with trivial wrinkling to the spine ends and just a hint of spine toning. The contents are clean with no spotting or previous ownership marks apart from the author’s inscription. The untrimmed fore edges are unspoiled, the blue-stained top edge unfaded. The jacket is unclipped, retaining the original $2.50 front flap price, and highly complete, with only fractional chipping to the spine ends and lower front corner. The jacket spine is moderately toned, but the jacket is otherwise clean and presents beautifully beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The clamshell case is of high quality suited to the book, featuring charcoal quarter leather spine with raised bands, red title and author panels, and gilt print, rules, and decoration over marbled paper-covered boards. Condition of the case is fine. John Steinbeck (1902-1968) ranks among the towering figures of mid-20th century American literature, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1940 for The Grapes of Wrath, and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1962, the latter awarded "for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception." Born in Salinas, California, Steinbeck knew he wanted to be a writer by the age of fourteen. He started a course of studies in English Literature at Stanford, but didn't graduate. Instead, he moved to New York City to try to become a freelance writer, returning to California when that didn't pan out. Steinbeck's first novel was Cup of Gold in 1929, followed by three shorter works in the first half of the 1930s. It wasn't until the publication of Tortilla Flat in 1935, however, that he achieved his first clear critical and commercial success. This book is a series of "rough and earthy" humorous sketches following the lives of paisanos in Monterey after the First World War. The book is peopled with the Mexican immigrants of Steinbeck’s native central California, and heralds his literary sympathies for California farm laborers, which would characterize his novels of the second half of the 1930s. Steinbeck's basis for the format and theme of the Tortilla Flat stories was Arthurian legend. He had received a copy of Le Morte d'Arthur for his 9th birthday which left a lasting impression. He later recalled "the old and obsolete words delighted me". Four thousand copies of the first edition were published by Covici Friede in 1935. The book was the basis for the 1942 movie starring Spencer Tracy, Hedy Lamarr, and John Garfield. Bookseller Inventory # 003846
