    A Signed First Edition of Yates' First Book

    Richard Yates. Revolutionary Road. Boston: Little, Brown, [1961]. First edition, first printing. Signed and dated "10/6/86" by the author on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 337 pages. Publisher's red quarter cloth with black cloth boards and gilt stamping. Original pictorial dust jacket. Light rubbing and bumping to binding. A few small spots of soiling to page edges, most noticeably along top edge. Mild rubbing to jacket with some sunning to spine titles. Offsetting to edges, possibly from a former protector. Tiny nick along bottom edge of rear inner flap. An overall near fine copy. A heartbreaking story of 1950s suburban desperation, recently adapted to film by Sam Mendes and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
