East Of Eden

By Steinbeck, John




East of Eden is a novel by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck, published in September 1952. Often described as Steinbeck's most ambitious novel, East of Eden brings to life the intricate details of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, and their interwoven stories. The novel was originally addressed to Steinbeck's young sons, Thom and John (then 6½ and 4½ respectively). Steinbeck wanted to describe the Salinas Valley for them in detail: the sights, sounds, smells, and colors.

Publisher's green cloth lettered in dark green to front board and stamped in red and black to spine; in the original pictorial dust jacket. About very good, variously soiled and with some wear and toning to extremities, text block edges toned and with faint scattered stains, small dampstain to the gutter at title page, professional repairs to backstrip; dust jacket about very good, price-clipped and with some wear and large chips to extremities, significant paper repairs and reinforcements, most noticeably to the front fold, bottom edge of front panel, and spine ends.

The former is based on Steinbeck's own genealogical lineage, while the latter is a representation of the Biblical Adam and his descendants. Considered by the author to be his masterpiece work, East of Eden is a culmination of the major themes and strengths of Steinbeck's other novels: an affinity for nature, the pervasive struggle between good and evil, familial relationships, and American history. During the writing process, Steinbeck chronicled the development of this novel with letters to his friend and former publisher Pascal Covici, the contents of which were published a year after Steinbeck's death as Journal of a Novel: The East of Eden Letters. A lengthy yet popular tale originally intended by the author to teach his sons about the Salinas Valley in California, East of Eden has been adapted into a film, a musical, and a television miniseries..

EAST OF EDEN [inscribed by Steinbeck]

Steinbeck, John

1952. [inscribed by Steinbeck] Melbourne :: London :: Toronto: William Heinemann, (1952). Original green cloth, with dust jacket. First English Edition, published the same year as the American. This is Steinbeck's tale of the Trask family in the Salinas Valley -- and of the two brothers Cal and Aron (for whom read Cain and Abel). The tale was made considerably more famous three years later, with the release of the Elia Kazan film starring James Dean as Cal, Richard Davalos as Aron, Julie Harris as the girl completing the triangle, and Raymond Massey as the boys' father. James Dean would not live out the year 1955. The volume is in near-fine condition (spine gilt less than bright, faint glass-ring on the rear cover). The dust jacket is very good-plus, with minor soil and creases but with no chips missing, unnecessary tape on the backside of the spine ends, and with the flap price of 15s intact. (The very minor flaws of the volume imply that this jacket has been "married" to this volume.) Goldstone & Payne A32c. The title page of this copy is inscribed by Steinbeck to a character in his next novel, "For Horace Dormody | with the best of | wishes | John Steinbeck". Horace Leonard Dormody MD (1897-1984) was a lifelong resident of the Monterey Peninsula, the setting for numerous Steinbeck novels. Horace's brother Hugh (also an MD) moved to the area in 1922, and two years later Horace followed him there after his own training at Harvard Medical School and Univ. of California Hospital; their joint practice evolved into a proprietary hospital. "We used to see 125 patients a day," Horace reported. "The canneries were running full blast then and we did a lot of industrial accident work." [quoted in Gerlach-Spriggs et al] The brothers' hospital in turn evolved into the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. Horace retired in 1975 and died in 1984; his last child died in 2016 -- quite likely the source of this volume, which came from that area. Two years after EAST OF EDEN, Dr. Horace Dormody would be immortalized in Steinbeck's next book, SWEET THURSDAY (1954 -- like CANNERY ROW sited among the canneries of Monterey). "Dr. Horace Dormody" is one of the townspeople in that book -- described as follows in the Steinbeck Encyclopedia: A Monterey physician in SWEET THURSDAY, with whom Doc schedules an appointment to see if there is any biological cause for his discontent. Later, Doc calls Dormody in the middle of the night to treat his broken arm, which Doc thinks he injured turning over in his sleep. Dormody suspects, rightly, that Doc's arm was broken by a hard blow. Professional ethics prevent Dormody from discussing the case with anyone, but he can't help chuckling about it to himself at odd moments.
