With a Sinclair Lewis ALS
    and a Signed Photo of Burt Lancaster

    Sinclair Lewis. Elmer Gantry. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, [1927]. First edition. Octavo. [viii], 432 pages. Publisher's full blue cloth, front board and spine stamped in orange, dust jacket. Jacket spine toned and chipped, some toning and mild edgewear to jacket, with a few creased tears, cloth spine a bit toned, some rubbing to binding, some minor bubbling to boards, text a bit toned. Still, a near fine copy which shows quite well.

    [Together with:] Sinclair Lewis. Autograph Letter Signed. July 27, 1929 [?]. On stationery of the Hotel Atlantic der Kaiserhof in Berlin. Two octavo pages. Addressed to Freeman Hopwood (mailing envelope is present). Some toning, short tears. Very good. "I probably shan't do a second preacher novel just now - let it simmer, lest I merely repeat myself."

    [Together with]: Burt Lancaster. Signed Postcard. From the German version of From Here to Eternity. Fine. Lancaster starred in the award-winning 1960 film version of Elmer Gantry, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
