Covers a bit creased, darkening, corners bumped.

"Travelling across America in search of who you are -- now they do it on cycles, in cars, by bus or in the time-honored tradition of foot and thumb.

"The Pearl is an enduring and classic fable, sensitively told, in simple and beautiful language. It is the story of a fisherman who found a pearl beyond price, the Pearl of the World.

"The Red Pony is the story of a boy who dreamed great dreams, of the sorrel colt that was the focus of those dreams, of the land that nourished them, of the mountains that hid their fulfillment. Steinbeck's early masterpiece reveals his profound love of many things - children and their wondrous imaginings, mountains, animals, people - and the land. "

4 Steinbeck, John The Short Reign of Pippin IV
Netherlands The Viking Press 1957 First Edition Cloth Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Illustrated by Du Bois, William Pene

188 pp., brownish orange cloth boards with yellow spine with copper gilt lettering. DJ in protective Brodart plastic wrap. DJ's spine is sunned, a little shallow chipping at spine and flap ends, small spots at ends of front flap, 1" closed tear at back flap edge. Text is clean and light.

"The unpredictable Mr. Steinbeck has been having himself a ball with some of his contemporaries. This frothy extravaganza about French politics - and various other matters - is so full of fun and good natured satire that it almost bubbles over. It's clear that he has had a wonderful time writing it; and readers who don't hold it against a writer for changing his type will have a wonderful time reading it. There's a story here - of what happens to a retiring middle-aged astronomer suddenly drafted to rule the unruly French; of his teen-age, glamour-struck daughter and her American swain, son of the Egg King of Petaluma, California; and of sundry members of the ancient nobility, art dealers, nuns, guards, gardeners, politicians, and plain people. But it would be criminal to try to tell more, or to pretend that the story makes the book. This is the French Revolution upside down, and Steinbeck at his most original."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
Price: 50.00 USD
