    The Limited Edition, Signed by Steinbeck

    John Steinbeck. East of Eden. New York: The Viking Press, 1952.

    First edition, limited to 1,500 copies signed by Steinbeck. Octavo. 602 pages.

    Publisher's dark green cloth with gilt title to front board, and gilt- and red-stamped spine; publisher's stain to edges. Binding slightly cocked. Red and gilt stamping to spine is rubbed. Minor wear to extremities. Bookplate on front free endpaper. Lacks cardboard slipcase. Very good.

    Steinbeck wrote about this book, his personal favorite: "It has everything in it I have been able to learn about my craft or profession in all these years. [...] I think everything else I have written has been, in a sense, practice for this."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
