THE GRAPES OF WRATH

THE GRAPES OF WRATH. John Steinbeck.
THE GRAPES OF WRATH

New York: Viking Press, 1939. First Edition. Hardcover. First Printing. Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket. Jacket shows just a hint of toning to the spine panel, else an exceptionally bright and fresh, unrestored example. Pulitzer Prize-winning classic of an Oklahoma family's migration to California during the Depression. Basis for the John Ford film featuring Henry Fonda as Tom Joad. Ford and Supporting Actress Jane Darwell won Academy Awards; Fonda was nominated but lost to Robert Donat in Goodbye, Mr. Chips! Steinbeck's masterpiece and literature's lasting testament to the Great Depression, it was singled-out in his citation for the Nobel Prize decades later. A spectacular copy. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Additional photos available upon request. Fine in Fine dust jacket. (Item #90)
