“They looked at each other until they weren't acquaintances any longer": First Edition of What Makes Sammy Run; Inscribed by Budd Schulberg in the year of publication
New York: Random House, 1941.
First edition of what many consider one of the most important novels on Hollywood and the film industry. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, “To Julian Johnson with respect and fond regards, Budd. March 29, 1941.” The recipient Julian Johnson was the head story editor for 20th Century Fox studios in the 1930s. Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with the rear panel with the blurbs by F. Scott Fitzgerald and John O’Hara. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association.
