An excellent association copy, inscribed by Wilder to Henry Luce, whom he first met as a classmate at Yale. The men had a close but complicated lifelong friendship. Wilder introduced Luce to his first wife, Lila Ross Hotz, while they all attended Yale; Henry and Lila married in 1923, and had two children together. It was Amos Parker Wilder - a journalist, diplomat, and Thornton's father - who pulled Luce aside during his senior year and told him: "Harry, don't. Don't go into journalism. It will turn you into a cynic. It will turn your wine into vinegar. You will lose your soul" (Morrow, Lance. "Lost Souls:… Read More

Laid into this copy is an excellent two page holograph letter, signed by Wilder, New Haven, Sept. 23, 1940, to Miss Tully regarding the editing of some later material, “...In talking to my friends I often use foolish out-of-date slang indicating by the voice that it is intentionally naive and to them in writing I keep up the same vein. But the same expressions read by those who do not know me looks like some out-of-the world fogey who does not know that times have changed...”
