Of Mice and Men

Steinbeck, John

Covici-Friede, 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. A fine first edition, first issue ("pendula" on page 9) in a near fine first issue dust jacket ($2.00 on front flap), inscribed by Steinbeck on the front free endpaper. Housed in a custom-made collector's clamshell case. This copy inscribed to prominent San Francisco doctor Ernest DuBray. The book has a funny history. Dr. DuBray was a conservative bibliophile and member of a San Francisco bookstore club that sent inscribed editions of new California books to its members. Dr. DuBray disliked Steinbck and so apparently never read the book, but he dutifully and properly stored it in his antiquarian colllection. As a result, the textblock looks like new. The spine of the jacket has a touch of age-toning, solidly near fine. Lovely book.

STEINBECK, John (1902-1968)

New York: Covici-Friede, 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine-. First Printing, First Issue, with "and only moved because the heavy hands were pendula," lines 20-21, p. 9, and bullet between the eight's on p. 88, one of only 2500 copies (in subsequent printings, the nine words on p. 9 were removed and the entire page reset) and p. 88 appears without the bullet between between the eight's). Chosen as a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, accounting for the many copies now on the market in clipped "unpriced" dust jackets masquerading as the genuine article. Small 8vo: 186pp. Publisher's beige cloth, spine and upper cover lettered within orange title block between thick black rules, top edge stained blue, pictorial dust jacket printed in black and priced $2.00. A spectacular copy, square, tight, clean, unmarked and probably unread, marred only by fading of blue top-stain (only a few traces of blue remain); about Fine jacket, completely free of tears and edge wear, but spine panel lightly sunned (black lettering and design undiminished). Truly, one for the vaults. Goldstone-Payne A7a. Hanna 3344. Baird 2336. Coan, p. 76. "Of Mice and Men (the title is drawn from Robert Burns's poem "To A Mouse": "The best laid schemes o' mice and men / Gang aft a-gley / An' leave us naught but grief an' pain / For promised joy") marks a deliberate change from Steinbeck's previous work, In Dubious Battle (1936). In this new project, Steinbeck chose to work within a narrower framework . . . concentrat[ing] on a small number of characters as Steinbeck tells the story of migrant ranch laborers in carefully detailed settings. . . . From the very beginning, not only are readers given a call to social reform (the plight of the migrant worker is bleak and unlikely to change), but they also see that such men possess an American dream shared by all levels of society. Even though George and Lennie are different in size, although one is mentally sharp and the other retarded, they both have their dream of ownership and independence." (The Literary Encyclopedia) N.

New York: Covici Friede, 1937. First edition. Fine/Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The book has a bit of foxing to the closed text block, not entering the pages, otherwise an excellent copy. In a Near Fine dust jacket with the spine a bit toned and slight nicks at the spine ends. A true first printing with the textual points on p. 9 and 88 as well as the priced dust jacket (avoid any dust jacket that doesn't retain the original price, $2.00). One of just 2500 copies and becoming scarce in this condition. Steinbeck's tragic novella portraying the life of two migrant farm-hands in California, unlikely friends cherishing the common dream of a better life. When George realizes that Lennie's childlike understanding of the world has led to irreparable violence, George ends Lennie's life as mercifully as he can before the arrival of a lynch mob. "If the story were callously told, the conclusion might be unbearable. But Mr. Steinbeck has told it with both passion and dexterity. The patient comradeship is developed in a series of homely episodes, conveyed in the vernacular of two lonely men blundering about their small world...Of Mice and Men is the dark side of an idyll" (Atkinson, contemporary NYT review). One of the author's most profound works. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
