JOHN STEINBECK A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE OF THE ADRIAN H. GOLDSTONE COLLECTION [with related items]
by [Steinbeck, John]: Goldstone, Adrian H., and John R. Payne [compilers]
Austin: UT Humanities Research Center, 1974. 240pp. Large octavo. Camel cloth, lettered in black. Small spot on fore-edge, otherwise near fine in chipped glassine. Accompanied by related items detailed below. First and only edition. One of 1200 copies designed by William Holman. This was one of John Payne's copies, and bears his tasteful (Reynolds Stone?) bookplate and is signed by him on the title page. It is accompanied by a set of sewn f&gs of the book, signed and dated (9 August 1974) by John on the first page and it also bears his bookplate. Also present is a set of blue-line page proofs for the book, bearing the ink name of then UT editor, jazz critic/historian and noted Texas poet, Dave Oliphant, on the half-title, above the proof approval stamp. Accompanied further by JOHN STEINBECK A COLLECTION OF BOOKS & MANUSCRIPTS, Brad Morrow's 1980 catalogue 8 offering the Harry Valentine Collection, with a Foreword by John Payne (1/250 in gilt cloth), very good in dust jacket, with John Payne's bookplate, signed by him on the title, and with a few scattered annotations (chiefly checks or circled item numbers); also present is another copy (1/2500 in wrappers), also with John's bookplate, signed by him, with a signed photocopy of the typescript of his Forward laid in. Accompanied, finally, by set #4 of ten sets of long galleys of the catalogue (without John's Foreword), folded, tanned and a bit frayed at a few margins. Together a fine association lot of copies of, and material relating to, two of the essential bibliographic references to the Steinbeck canon.
