Saul Bellow (1964) ‘Herzog‘, US first edition, first printing, published by Viking. Signed by the author on the title page without further inscriptions.
Provenance: obtained at an auction in New York with other signed first editions of Nobel Prize winners.
Condition: a near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Hardly any trace of shelf wear to the book; no previous owner’s scribbles. The dust jacket has some minor edge wear as shown and the spine is a trifle darker than the panels. A nice copy.
‘Herzog’ won the American National Book Award for Fiction in 1965 and contributed to Bellow’s Nobel Prize in 1976.
