GEORGIA BOY (Two Versions of the Same Title Signed By Cover Artist James Avati)

Caldwell, Erskine

New York: Signet 760, 1950. Caldwell, Erskine. GEORGIA BOY. Two copies, both Signet, #760 (first printing, 1950 & fifth revised printing, 1957). BOTH COPIES SIGNED BY COVER ARTIST JAMES AVATI. The 1950 paperback is in Very Good condition (lamination lift and edge-wear)) and the 1957 Version is Near Fine (just a few trifling blemishes). An unusual opportunity to see a cover artist's evolution. Avati always read the books he illustrated and from the illustrations, one can see his vision went from a kind of innocence to a far more sophisticated, if suggestive, view point only seven years later. James Avati (1912-2005) was often called "The Rembrandt" of 1940s and 1950s paperback illustration. He popularized authors such as Erskine Caldwell and William Faulkner for the average reader with alluring cover art which sported extraordinary emotional impact. His brilliance in capturing human feeling: tension or pain, suggestiveness or lust, avarice or suspicion, compassion or devotion was unrivaled during the golden age of paperback illustration. He created a visual narrative that brought characters' tragedies and yearnings to life with a tough-minded gritty realism that put Norman Rockwell to shame. We were fortunate to acquire a small cache of his famous Signet first printing covers which were signed by him at his home in Petaluma, California a half-dozen years before he passed away. To the best of our knowledge, he never signed any other books for which he provided illustrations other than the ones which were acquired on this one occasion. Please search the keywords James Avati to see if any other of his signed copies still remain in our stock. GEORGIA BOY was originally written as a hardcover in 1943 and its stories compare well to Caldwell's classics "God's Little Acre" and "Tobacco Road." However Caldwell wasn't widely read until the 1950s when Signet and James Avait led a revival of his popularity by making his books cheaply and providing compelling cover art such as that found on these copies.. Signed. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. Illus. by James Avati.

Georgia Boy

Caldwell, Erskine

New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce. Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket. 1943. Hardcover. Inscribed by Author: "For Edward S. Lewis, What are you going to do with this one if it out sells your and my fondest expectations? Erskine Caldwell." Edward Lewis was the hard charging salesman for Roscoe Fawcett's publishing empire. Fawcett specialized in publishing paperbacks with lurid colors, sexy artwork, and attention grabbing blurbs (especially for the 1940s). Despised by traditional hardcover publishers, Fawcett and Lewis' sales tactics made them and Caldwell quite wealthy. They published and sold many of Caldwell's novels in cheap paperback editions with colorful covers after the hardcover edition came out, placing the lurid paperback novels in untraditional book sales outlets - like gasoline stations. Lewis in particular was a superstar at getting gas stations to accept racks of Caldwell's sexy paperbacks. Ships same or next business day. Bookplate of noted collector, Rolland Comstock, on front pastedown. Text block slightly pulled away from spine head, minor edge wear, small bumps on spine ends and top corners, edges of pages are lightly tanned; pages are clean and tight. Dust jacket protected in archival cover. DJ has moderate edge and shelf wear, tiny chips on corners and spine ends, faded on spine, tape on interior of jacket at stress points. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 239 pages; Signed by Author .
