The Goodhues of Sinking Creek (Signed 1st Printing) W R Burnett [Near Fine] [Hardcover] ID 1409580642

First Printing 1934--although previously first published in Scribner's Magazine in 1931. A near-fine copy in a very good unclipped dustjacket. From the recently auctioned collection of M.B. Goldstone--bibliographer to Steinbeck. This copy has Burnett's signature to the front endpaper--without any further inscription. A clean and tight copy with some slight edgewear to a couple tips. Beautiful wood cut illustrations by J. J. Lankes--similar to the same as found on Robert Frost "Steeplebush". The dustjacket is lightly chipped at the heel of the spine and a little rubbed on the back cover--but otherwise just mildly soiled. A moderate change for Burnett and his heavily crime laden novels and screenplays. A scarce title to find in collectible condition let alone signed. Burnett was a prolific author and then later a prolific screenwriter in Hollywood.

Price: USD 135.00
