    More Information:

    John Dos Passos. Group of Five Books. New York: [1921-1939]. First editions, one signed, two review copies. Streets of Night is inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "With best Christmas/wishes-John/1923". Three Soldiers is inscribed by Samuel Margolis on Dos Passos' behalf (Samuel Margolis was a pseudonym that Samuel Goldwyn sometimes used, so it is possible that it is actually in Goldwyn's hand). Two (Adventures of a Young Man, The Big Money,) are review copies. The last book in this lot, Rosinante, was owned by Dudley Poore, one of the contributors (along with Dos Passos), to the 1917 Harvard Poets. Only Adventures of a Young Man has the dust jacket. Jacket worn and sunned, some wear to other books. Generally good or better. From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.
