    More Information:

    James Jones. Some Came Running. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1957]. First edition. Inscribed by Jones to author Davis Grubb. Inscribed in blue marker on half-title by Jones in block letters: "For Cousin Davis Grubb-/A man who-despite his/protests; whatever-has/never done a bad thing,/mothers notwithstanding./Love & Piece[sic]/Jim/(J. Jones, Novelist)". Octavo. xii, 1266, [1, blank], [1, Acknowledgment] pages. Publisher's binding, price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket spine sunned, some rubbing, moderate soiling, wear to jacket edges, one tape repair to verso, slight rubbing to binding. Very good. Davis Grubb (1919-1980) is perhaps best known for his southern gothic novel, The Night of the Hunter (1953). An excellent association.
