    A Confederacy of Dunces (Signed by Percy) by Toole, John Kennedy

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana: Louisiana State University Press, 1980. Second printing. Near Fine/Very Good. An excellent copy of the book, Near Fine or perhaps a little better with a light splash-mark on the top-edge of the page block, otherwise in excellent shape. With a Very Good, first state dust jacket with some small chips at the top of the spine and with the titling quite faded, as is common with this book. Signed by Walker Percy on the title page. A major work of American literature, the novel depicts the satirical adventures of Ignatius J. Reilly as he saunters around New Orleans, looking for work and railing against modern culture. The book was written in the early 1960s, but wasn't published until 1980, 11 years after Toole's suicide, when the author's mother took the manuscript to Walker Percy and essentially forced him to read it. "There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained-that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther… In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good." Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1981. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket.

    Death of a Salesman (Signed First Edition) by Miller, Arthur

    New York: The Viking Press, 1949. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Signed by the author on the title page. Book Near Fine on account of a previous owner's name written on the first blank, otherwise a lovely copy. With the correct date "1949" on the title page, although the type is breaking on the final "9". In a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket, with the spine a trifle faded and light wear at the spine ends and corners. In all, a very presentable copy of a book that is relatively uncommon in anything approaching Fine condition. Arthur Miller's 1949 play - one of the towering classics of the American stage. "Death of a Salesman" follows the trials of Willy Loman, the quintessential American tragic hero. The original production was directed by Elia Kazan, starred Lee J. Cobb, and ran for 742 performances. The role of Loman has also been played by such luminaries as George C. Scott, Brian Dennehy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The play would win a Tony Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the New York Drama Circle Critics' Award, becoming the first play to win all three prizes. It would also be adapted into a 1951 film, directed by Stanley Roberts -- Fredric March would be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. "Arthur Miller has written a superb drama. From every point of view "Death of a Salesman," which was acted at the Morosco last evening, is a rich and memorable drama. It is so simple in style and so inevitable in theme that it scarcely seems like a thing that has been written and acted." (Brooks Atkinson in a Contemporary New York Times review).

    A Streetcar Named Desire by Williams, Tennessee

    New York: New Directions, 1947. First edition. about Fine/Near Fine. A sharp copy of this theater and film highspot. A just about Fine copy of the book with minor discoloration to the spine ends. In a lovely, Near Fine dust jacket with a little nick at the top of the rear panel, minor creasing at the crown and some offsetting on the front flap. One short tear on the rear panel reinforced on the blank verso with tape. But a copy that displays almost none of the ubiquitous toning and fading so often seen and, therefore, is quite unusual. Tennessee Williams' 1947 masterpiece, a Pulitzer Prize winning work that remains one of the great plays of the American theatre. A Streetcar Named Desire follows Blanche DuBois as she moves to New Orleans to live with her sister, Stella, and Stella's husband Stanley. Like many of Williams' plays, some of the characters are thought to be inspired by members of Williams' own family. A Streetcar Named Desire originally premiered on Broadway on December 3rd 1949, starring Marlon Brando and Jessica Tandy and directed by Eliza Kazan. The London production involved such theatrical luminaries as Vivian Leigh and Laurence Olivier. Of course, the play would be adapted in a classic film version in 1951, which would win four Academy Awards including Best Actress, and was chosen as the Library of Congress as 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.' "But Mr. Williams is entitled to his own independence. For he has not forgotten that human beings are the basic subject of art. Out of poetic imagination and ordinary compassion he has spun a poignant and luminous story." (Contemporary New York Times review). about Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
