WELCOME TO HARD TIMES

Doctorow, E. L. (SIGNED)

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.

Welcome To Hard Times

Doctorow, E.L.

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. Firts edition of THE AUTHOR'S FIRST BOOK. Hardcover in orange paper-covered boards lettered in black over buff buckram cloth spine. 180 pp. A tight example, light staining to the cloth portion of the binding and some offsetting about the edges of the endpapers, pages embrowned which is both inevitable and somewhat remarkable as cheap paper was used descpite the fact that a top publisher (Simon & Schuster) issued it. In price clipped dust jacket, near fine, touch of toning to the spine strip and a modest bit of wear at the foot of the spine. Set in the small town of Hard Times in the barren West at the close of the 19th century, a tale that revolves around a badman who destroys the town in one day, cruelly and casually and the mayor whose helpful nature impels him to rebuild it. Meanwhile, the town prostitute waits in terror and hatred for the badman to return.
