Description:
New York: The Viking Press,, 1939. Presentation copy, connecting Steinbeck and Hemingway First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author "For Vincent Sheean, John Steinbeck" and additionally inscribed by the recipient, "Although it is signed to me, Mr Steinbeck intended this book to go for the Spanish intellectuals in exile - Vincent Sheean". Vincent Sheean (1899-1975), the American journalist and writer, published Personal History in 1935. A film adaptation, entitled Foreign Correspondent and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was released in 1940. Working as a reporter for the New York Herald Tribune he covered the Spanish Civil War, hence his note about "Spanish intellectuals in exile". Sheean had been in Spain with Ernest Hemingway in 1938 and was responsible for the only known meeting between Steinbeck and Hemingway. Writing in John Steinbeck and his Contemporaries, Valerie Hemingway notes that Steinbeck had been "a thorn in Hemingway's side". Nevertheless, Hemingway… Read More

A Fine copy of the book in a price-clipped dust jacket that is otherwise in Fine condition (retaining critical "First Edition" slug on the lower flap).

The book was the best-selling novel of 1939 and became instantly controversial upon its release for its depiction of farmers and worker rights.

Description:
New York, The Viking Press, 1939. . First edition, first printing; 8vo; unmarked internally; publisher's pictorial beige cloth, decoration to boards and titles to spine in brown, yellow topstain, pictorial endpapers, light toning to cloth at extremities, with the unclipped pictorial dustjacket by Elmer Hader, correct state with 'FIRST EDITION' on the front flap and with the $2.75 price extant, short closed tear to top edge of front panel, else near-fine; housed in modern blue cloth drop-back box, gilt lettering to spine. Set during the Great Depression, the novel focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their home by drought, economic hardship, and changes in financial and agricultural industries. Due to their nearly hopeless situation and in part because they were trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California. Along with thousands of other 'Okie', they sought jobs, land, dignity, and a future. Steinbeck was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1940 for… Read More

Description:
New York: The Viking Press,, 1939. The fields were fruitful, and starving men moved on the roads First edition, first printing, of the author's masterpiece, one of the greatest American novels of the century, widely regarded as the supreme literary achievement of the Depression era. The film adaptation by Darryl F. Zanuck, produced the following year, is likewise readily ranked as among the greatest 20th-century American films. The jacket design is by the children's writer and illustrator Elmer Hader (1889-1973), the joint recipient, alongside his wife Berta, of the 1948 Caldecott medal. Steinbeck was so taken with the illustrations in their book Billy Butter (1936) that he specially requested Elmer design the jacket for The Grapes of Wrath. Elmer later designed the jackets of East of Eden (1952) and The Winter of Our Discontent (1961). Octavo. Original buff cloth, spine lettered in brown, pictorial design in brown wrapped around spine and covers, endpapers printed with sheet music for "Battle Hymn… Read More
