About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1961. First edition of Steinbeck's final novel, which along with The Grapes of Wrath are considered his masterpieces. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "For Betty Beecher, with all the best John Steinbeck Sag Harbor 1961." The photograph of Steinbeck on the rear panel of the dust jacket is by William Ward Beecher (the husband of Betty) who has signed his name on the rear panel. Also laid in is a small clipping from the brown wrapping paper in which the book was shipped, in the author's handwriting "From John Steinbeck Box 1017 Sag Harbor NY." Some light dampstaining in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Elmer Hader. Lettering by Jeanyee Wong. Photograph by William Ward Beecher. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Presentations copies of Steinbeck's masterpiece are rare. In awarding John Steinbeck the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Nobel committee stated that with The Winter of Our Discontent, he had "resumed his position as an independent expounder of the truth, with an unbiased instinct for what is genuinely American." Ethan Allen Hawley, the protagonist of Steinbeck's last novel, works as a clerk in a grocery store that his family once owned. With Ethan no longer a member of Long Island's aristocratic class, his wife is restless, and his teenage children are hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide. Then one day, in a moment of moral crisis, Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards. Set in Steinbeck's contemporary 1960 America, the novel explores the tenuous line between private and public honesty, and today ranks alongside his most acclaimed works of penetrating insight into the American condition.

About this Item: n.p. (NY), The Viking Press, 1961, 1961. n.p. (NY), The Viking Press, 1961, first edition, wrappers. Softcover. Advance copy, a spiral-bound uncorrected galley proof, printed on rectos only, a very scarce state of the book made all the more rare in that it is an Author Presentation Copy, being Inscribed by Steinbeck to the best man at his second wedding, Howard O. Hunter, who was the Works Progress Administration (WPA) commissioner in the early 1940s in the FDR administration, Steinbeck inscribed the front cover as follows: "For Edna and/Howard Hunter/with the deepest/affection/John Steinbeck," he amended his inscription a little lower on the front cover by noting "Please remember/that it is uncorrected," the proof has one preliminary after which the novel begins, thus it lacks the published version's half titles, title and copyright pages, a list of other books by the author, the dedication page and a page stating that people and places within the book are fictional, although the Nobel Prize for Literature is awarded for the body of an author's work and not a specific book, it is generally believed that Steinbeck won the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature because of this morality story, laid in loosely is a brief typed signed letter from a relative of Edna Hunter, Ellen Leonard, which provides some provenance, it states "The Winter of Our Discontent an uncorrected galley was given to me by my great aunt Edna Hunter. She was married to Howard O. Hunter who was deputy administrator to the WPA during the FDR administration in the early 1940's," this advanced state is not recorded by Goldstone & Payne or Morrow, now housed in a beautiful clamshell case with leather spine. Very good. Seller Inventory # JD29488
