    A Handsome Copy of Steinbeck's Masterpiece

    John Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath. New York: The Viking Press, [1939]. First edition. Octavo. [vi], 619, [3, blank] pages. Publisher's full brown buckram, decoratively stamped in dark brown in a wraparound design. Original pictorial dust jacket with "First Edition" at the bottom of the front flap. Small dampstain to the rear cover. Gift inscription to the front free endpaper. Foxing to textblock edges. Minor wear to the jacket. Minor sunning to the spine. Very good.

    More Information:

    This book, perhaps more than any other, movingly illustrated the plight of the dispossessed during the Great Depression. Grapes of Wrath received the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, and was one of the primary works cited when Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. Steinbeck scholar John Timmerman summed up the book's impact: "The Grapes of Wrath may well be the most thoroughly discussed novel - in criticism, reviews, and college classrooms - of twentieth century American Literature."
