Information
First edition first print hardback of THE ADVENTURES OF AUGIE MARCH by Saul Bellow and published by The Viking Press, New York in September 1953. Signed by Bellow on the front endpaper. Printed by H. Wolff, New York.

The book is in good condition (pictorial cloth boards with orange lettering to spine) with light age related wear including bumping, rubbing and staining here and there. The book is lacking the dust jacket. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Augie comes on stage with one of literature’s most famous opening lines. "I am an American, Chicago born, and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way: first to knock, first admitted." It’s the "Call me Ishmael" of mid-20th-century American fiction. (For the record, Bellow was born in Canada.) Or it would be if Ishmael had been more like Tom Jones with a philosophical disposition. With this teeming book Bellow returned a Dickensian richness to the American novel. As he makes his way to a full brimming consciousness of himself, Augie careens himself through numberless occupations, and countless mentors and exemplars, all the while enchanting us with the slapdash American music of his voice.
