Lot 4440

$20
This auction lot includes the following group of MASH titles by author Richard Hooker:

- M*A*S*H by Richard Hooker - Dated 1968 by William Morrow and Company, Inc. - This volume is the first edition of Hooker's first published work.
- M*A*S*H Mania by Richard Hooker - Dated 1977 by Dodd Mead & Co. - In the original dust jacket, this volume contains a unique inscription on the front free endpaper. The inscription reads: "Work like hell, Play like hell, Fight the system, Happy 1978, Charles Walthen...Written by Richard Hornberger of Bremen, Maine. In 1948, I talked him into becoming a doctor (a famous thoracic surgeon of sorts). I'm part of the book. We ran hospitals well."

The M*A*S*H book series includes the original novel that inspired the movie and then the TV series. The first, MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, was written by H. Richard Hornberger, himself a former military surgeon; it was published in 1968 under the pen name Richard Hooker. It told the story of a U.S. mobile army surgical hospital in Korea during the Korean War, and was followed by two other books, also by Hooker: M*A*S*H Goes to Maine in 1972, covering the lives of the surgeons after they returned home from the war, and M*A*S*H Mania (in the late 1970s), with further adventures of the swampmen grown older.
Hornberger worked eleven years on his debut novel, MASH, which was rejected by many publishers before being acquired by William Morrow and Company. Ultimately, however, the book proved amazingly successful. The novel, whose main protagonist Hawkeye Pierce is believed by many to be Hornberger himself, but really is not, quickly inspired an Academy Award-winning film released in 1970 and a widely popular television series that lasted eleven seasons. Interestingly however, Hornberger reportedly did not like Alan Alda's portrayal in the TV series, while he viewed the original Robert Altman movie in which Pierce was played by Donald Sutherland many times. According to John Baxter in A Pound of Paper: Confessions of a Book Addict, Hooker "was so furious at having sold the film rights for only a few hundred dollars that he never again signed a copy of the book."

After a series of M*A*S*H novels that were ghostwritten and not actually written by Hornberger, M*A*S*H Mania was his first book since M*A*S*H Goes to Maine (1972). The book, which follows the M*A*S*H characters in their continued post-war adventures in Maine, did not meet the same critical or commercial success as the original novel, MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors (1968).
