First Edition. A review copy of the author’s third and final National Book Award winning novel, which was and remains an unprecedented literary accomplishment. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by the author. A very nice copy.

Saul Bellow is the only author to have received three National Book Awards, for The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammler’s Planet, in addition to both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes. The Sunday Times praised these achievements when it revered "Bellow’s oeuvre [as] both timeless and ruthlessly contemporary."
