First Edition Humbolt's Gift SIGNED by SAUL BELLOW; JSA COA Authentication. To begin with, it is a SIGNED FIRST EDITION of a Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Saul Bellow, one of America's Best 20th Century authors. Bellow's SIGNATURE has been AUTHENTICATED by JSA. That being said, the book is 47 years old.
A previous owner casually marked in it approximately 20 times, an example of which is at Photo 5. So, the book is in used and even somewhat weathered condition. The price has been clipped on the inside of the dust jacket and it and the book itself have other cosmetic imperfections. Please see the photographs for best description. Please review all photos carefully before purchasing, and feel free to ask questions if the photos do not suffice.
Additional photos can be provided upon request. I think it A Work of genius, I think it The Work of a Genius, I think it brilliant, splendid, etc.If there is literature (and this proves there is) this is where it's at. Saul Bellow's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel explores the long friendship between Charlie Citrine, a young man with an intense passion for literature, and the great poet Von Humboldt Dleisher. At the time of Humboldt's death, Charlie's life is falling apart: his career is at a standstill, and he's enmeshed in an acrimonious divorce, infatuated with a highly unsuitable young woman, and involved with a neurotic Mafioso.
And then Humboldt acts from beyond the grave, bestowing upon Charlie an unexpected legacy that may just help him turn his life around.
