WELCOME TO HARD TIMES

by Doctorow, E. L. (SIGNED)

Condition: Fine/Fine


New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First Edition. Hard Cover with Dust Jacket. Fine/Fine. Octavo. First Printing. Author's first book SIGNED AND INSCRIBED to a close acquaintance whom he thought highly of signing his name "Ed" rather than the usual "E.L." . "To..../with admiration/Ed Doctorow/ Dec. 1965", 180pp. Bound in 1/4 white cloth over orange paper covered boards lettered in black, top edge red. Quite possibly one of the finest copies to be offered in several years. While the pages do have the usual noted age-toning, the book itself is pristine, in unclipped, pristine dust jacket. Basis for the 1967 western starring Henry Fonda, Warren Oates and Kennan Wynn; a classic tale of meanness in the old West.
