    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.
