Flight

By Steinbeck, John (Wallace Stegner, afterword and Karin Wikstrom illustrations)

A hand-crafted, limited edition of a short story written in the 1930s (original appearance was in The Long Valley). This is copy 180 of 250 such copies and is signed by Stegner and Wikstrom on the limitation page. A Fine book housed in Near Fine slipcase that has some sunning and light shelf wear. Book is in letterpress printed on hand-made paper from Magnani in Italy. Bound using Dutch linen with decorative design. The color illustrations have been tipped-in. A thank you note is laid-in as is a reprint of Art Seidenbaum's review, which appeared in the Los Angeles Times Book Review of Sunday, June 10,1984 (this sheet is Very Good with several folds and ceases). The book is approximately 10 by 12 inches. Included is a separately bound, in wraps, Fine copy of Stegner's Afterword. Over-run sheets from the book were used by the publishers to produce this unsigned version of the Afterword, which included one of Wikstrom's illustrations. Apparently they used these as presentations – number of copies is unknown but undoubtedly small.

Death of a Salesman

By Miller, Arthur

Very Good book with soft spine ends, sun fade along edges of orange boards and spine, top stain faded, wear and rubbing along bottom edges that has just exposed a bit of board at corners. Stray, very small spot to second end page and with several small indentations near top corner title page, and next 3 pages. There is a broken "o" in "solid" on p.11 line 7. Second state jacket (with mention of Drama Critic's award to front flap and no photo of Miller on back flap) is Very Good with edge and corner wear, some light color loss and small chips at spine ends. Price on front flap is $2.50. Jacket has slight soiling back panel, mild rubbing, small closed tear at top front at spine, touch of sun fade. This is Miller's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play of 1949. Many available signed copies have Miller's signature to a tipped-in end page; however, this copy has been signed by the author on the half-title page. Additionally, there are two pages laid-in documenting the provenance of Miller's signature. The first is a copy of a letter of June 20, 2003, to the then owner of the book on Miller's letterhead. The letter notes that Mr. Miller is happy to sign books, but in the future please include post-paid packaging for the return shipment. The letter is signed by Julia Bolus, assistant to A. M. Also laid-in is a copy of the front of envelope that contained the letter, showing a June postmark and Miller's return address.
