Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1928, ranked as No.37 on The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels list, and basis for four film adaptations between 1929-2004. 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

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...”

BOOK: is very clean and the sections(signatures) are still very well bound,but the webbing between them is showing at some places, still very secure and held together tightly,other than that appears to be better than the Good+ I rate it.. included is a 9th printing,with its dustjacket which has chips and darken spine,maybe use it to protect the good one.

Longman's Green & Co, 1927. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good-. Signed. Laid in is an approximate 3"x5" slip of paper inscribed ("Best wishes of"), SIGNED by Thorton Wilder, and followed by "Washington D.C. April 1948". The slip has a horizontal crease above the inscription and is in very good/near fine condition. The volume has light offsetting on the endpapers from the pastedowns and pages 13 & 15 have 3/8" jagged tears on the top edge (possibly a page cutting glitch, because the tear on page 15 does not go through on the verso, page 16). The unclipped dust jacket is missing 3/8" on the spine crown, has a sunned spine, a 1/8" chip on the top of the front panel, and shallow chips on the corners and spine tail. The jacket, sleeved in mylar, is also rubbed and age toned on the flap tops. This is the true first of this pulitzer prize novel, as it precedes the US edition.
