A superb association copy, inscribed by Bradbury to his long-time friend and fine press publisher Herb Yellin (1935-2014), who between the 1970's through the early 2000's published many of Bradbury's books and broadsides.

Description:
New York: Julian Messner, Inc, 1946. First Edition. The author's second hardcover book, and the one that propelled him to fame and success. Wald's own copy, clearly consulted prior to and during the filming of Dark Passage. Wald would have a hand in producing some of the most recognizable noirs and crime dramas from the period, including Background To Danger, Mildred Pierce, Key Largo, Flamingo Road, They Drive By Night, and The Harder They Fall, among others. Books inscribed by Goodis are rare; we know of but a handful that have surfaced in the market over the last 12 years. Only the second presentation copy of Dark Passage we have seen - the other, identically inscribed on the same date, was given to Jack L. Warner. A superb association. The Dark Page, Vol.1, p.114-115; Hubin, p.173. First Printing. Octavo (19.25cm); black cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; red topstain; dustjacket; 248pp. Presentation copy, inscribed by the Goodis in the year of publication to Jerry Wald on the front… Read More

Description:
West Kingston, RI: Donald M. Grant, 1984. Second Edition. The Gunslinger begins the quest by Roland, the gunslinger, to track and confront the "man in black," who knows, perhaps, the secret of the "Dark Tower." As he travels across the barren landscape of King's alternate world, sometimes alone, sometimes with a boy named Jake, Roland recalls fragments of his own past. He finally confronts the man in black, who reads his future with a Tarot deck" (Barron, Horror Literature: A Reader's Guide 4-164). Among King's most widely-read works, successfully merging elements of the spaghetti western and epic fantasy. Basis for Nikolaj Arcel's 2017 film adaptation (The Dark Tower), starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. An association copy of the highest caliber. To the casual reader, the connection between King and John D. MacDonald (1916-1986) may not be immediately apparent, but despite a 31 year age difference, there was a strong friendship between the two men, and depth of mutual admiration. Prior… Read More
