Memories of Wallace Stegner

James M.Dourgarian, Bookman, was established in 1980. We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA). Like all ABAA members, we answer to a higher authority and follow a higher standard of ethics that guarantees a successful transaction for all our customers.

We buy and sell old books, vintage books, collectible books, rare books, first edition books, and related ephemera. We maintain several specialties. Among them are American fiction first editions from c.1900 to the present. Within that general field, we have heavy emphasis in John Steinbeck and Steinbeckiana. Thus, we buy and sell Steinbeck primary first editions in dust jackets, signed/limited editions, his appearances in anthologies, his periodical appearances, books and periodicals about Steinbeck, film and theatre memorabilia, bibliographies, and miscellaneous items.

We also specialize in these same categories for these authors -- Jack London, Wallace Stegner, and Stephen King. Other specialties include Western Americana, books on California and the West, Photography books, books on Japan, China, and the Orient, and Armed Services Editions. The latter are vintage paperbacks issued to American GIs from 1943 to 1947. They are comprised of mysteries, Westerns, science fiction and fantasy, mainstream fiction, historical novels, science, poetry, adventure stories, and more.

Within our field of modern first editions, we also sell related film memorabilia Thus, we sell film posters, lobby card sets, pressbooks, stills, scripts, etc. for films made from the works of authors we carry such as John Steinbeck, Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Raymond Chandler, Zane Grey, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Stephen King, Edward Abbey, Anne Rice, and many others.

Steinbeck, John. Cup of Gold. NY, Robert M. McBride, 1929, first edition, dust jacket. Hardcover. First issue of Author's First Book, a historical novel of the purple prose school about the life of Sir Henry Morgan, pirate, this is the first issue with the top edge stained blue and with an extra blank leaf at the end, Goldstone & Payne A1a, Morrow 1, a very scarce book, especially with the garish dust jacket illustrated by Mahlon Blaine, even Steinbeck himself did not own a copy of this book, the inscription by Steinbeck on the copy at San Jose State University reads, "I wish I had a copy of this edition--John Steinbeck," this is one of only 1,537 copies actually bound, even better, this is an Author Presentation Copy and very probably the last of the close family copies to come to the marketplace being Inscribed to his older sister, Elizabeth Ainsworth ("For my sister/Beth whom/I love/very much/John Steinbeck"), she has also signed the book, nearly all the other close family copies are now in institutions. As one might expect of a family copy, this book was well read by his sister and her family, while far from pristine, it is nevertheless an outstandingly collectible copy of the first order, good.

With an introduction about Sheffield (who preferred to be called "Sheff," not Dook, the moniker Steinbeck gave him) by Richard Blum, includes a handsome b&w photo portrait of Steinbeck used as the frontispiece, also includes a b& photo of Sheff reading a newspaper while having a cup of coffee in his tiny kitchen, this is one of less than 100 copies produced piecemeal as order came in for the book, although poorly and cheaply produced, this is one of the best books ever written about Steinbeck, written by one of his college roommates and a life-long friend, it brilliantly explains the relationship of Steinbeck's writing to music, additionally, the importance of Carlton Sheffield to Steinbeck cannot be over-stated, one of Steinbeck's writing techniques was to write his stories as if he were telling it to just one person, in his early writings that one person was Carlton Sheffield, this is an Association Copy of the highest order being Inscribed by Sheff to noted Steinbeck scholar Robert DeMott ("for Robet DeMott--/Scholar, poet, and friend/Carlton A. (Dook) Sheffield"), at the time of this publication DeMott was becoming acting director of the Steinbeck Research Center at San Jose State, DeMott has been among the best of Steinbeck scholars for decades and is easily the most accessible writer who can explain and expound on Steinbeck in something other than English professor-speak, he helped launch "The Steinbeck Quarterly," a mostly scholarly publication dedicated to Steinbeck, he is also the author of a trilogy of books on Steinbeck beginning with his influential Steinbeck's Reading published in 1984, followed by Working Days which follows Steinbeck's own journal kept while writing The Grapes of Wrath, that was followed by Steinbeck's Typewriter, he also wrote the introduction to his friend Jim Harrison's bibliography, taped to the inside rear cover is an envelope from Sheff to DeMott, inside is a snapshot photo of this bookseller and Sheff embracing taken by DeMott during his and this bookseller's visit to see Sheff in 1984.

Zanuck made some suggestions which were followed that "all of John's important words and thoughts are faithfully in the film," thus it is likely that this Feb. 6 script is closer to what Steinbeck had originally planned than the May 16, 1951 shooting script that followed it, this item wasn't in the Adrian H.
