    A Signed First Edition of Yates' First Book

    Richard Yates. Revolutionary Road. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, [1961].

    First edition. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Alan Butler, / With warm regards, / Richard Yates / Sept. 22, 1984." Octavo. 337 pages.

    Publisher's red quarter cloth with black cloth boards and gilt stamping. Cloth is slightly rubbed with some very light foxing on the top edge. Dust jacket shows some light edge wear with darkening along the spine and a one-inch tear on the bottom edge of the rear joint. There is a half-inch dampstain on the bottom spine edge that does not affect the book. A very good copy of the author's first book, housed in a custom clamshell box.

    A heartbreaking story of 1950s suburban desperation, recently adapted to film by Sam Mendes and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
