Title: Grimus: A Novel
Author: Salman Rushdie
Publisher: Overlook Press
Printing Year: 1979 Signed First American Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in black cloth with bright embosssed gilt lettering to spine, this volume is a scarce autographed copy of Rushdie's debut novel, a fantasy and science fiction novel.

The story loosely follows Flapping Eagle, a young Indian who receives the gift of immortality after drinking a magic fluid. After drinking the fluid, Flapping Eagle wanders the earth for 777 years 7 months and 7 days, searching for his immortal sister and exploring identities before falling through a hole in the Mediterranean Sea. He arrives in a parallel dimension at the mystical Calf Island where those immortals who have tired of the world but are reluctant to give up their immortality exist in a static community under a subtle and sinister authority.

Published in 1975, "Grimus" was Salman Rushdie’s first published novel. To a large extent it has been disparaged by academic critics; though Peter Kemp’s comment is particularly vitriolic, it does give an idea of the novel’s initial reception: "His first novel, Grimus (1975), a ramshackle surreal saga based on a 12th-century Sufi poem and copiously encrusted with mythic and literary allusion, nosedived into oblivion amid almost universal critical derision." (Plot summary and comment courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: The History of the Descendants of Elder John Strong of Northhampton, Mass.
Author: Benjamin W. Dwight
Publisher: Joel Munsell (Albany, New York)
Printing Year: 1871 Volume II

Condition/Details: Bound in blindstamped brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine, this antique volume is a rare work of genealogy, tracing the history of one of the first European families in New England. John Strong was born about 1610 in Chard, Somerset, England. He married about 1632, Marjorie Deane of Chard. It was May 8, 1635 that John Strong, with his family, set sail aboard the ship Hopewell, from Weymouth, to join the Puritans in Massachusetts. His wife and an infant child did not survive the trip. He settled briefly at Dorchester and Hingham before moving to Taunton in 1638. He was listed as one of the original purchasers of Taunton, as were the brothers of his first wife, John and Walter Deane, and John Richmond. At about that time he married second Abigail Ford. Abigail had come with her family from Dorchester, Dorset, England in 1630 on the ship Mary and John.

John served as constable at Taunton. Sometime before 1645 the family moved to Winsor, Conn., where his father in law was a large land holder. After living fifteen years at that young settlement, the Strongs returned to Massachusetts, settling at Northampton in 1660. As well as plying his trade as a tanner, John was appointed the first ruling elder of the church at Northampton. He died there April 14, 1699; his wife, Abigail, preceeded him in death July 6, 1688.

The work is illustrated with engraved portraits. The volume shows external age/wear, with chipping to spine and bumped corners. The book is solidly bound with age-toned pages.

Title: Twilight
Author: Elie Wiesel
Publisher: Summit Books
Printing Year: 1987 Signed First Printing

Condition/Details: Bound in dark blue quarter-cloth over light blue paper boards with bright silver lettering to spine, this volume is a scarce autographed novel by Elie Wiesel (b. 1928), a writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor. He is best known for accounts of his experiences during the Holocaust and his imprisonment in several concentration camps. His diverse range of other writings offer powerful and poetic contributions to literature, theology, and his own articulation of Jewish spirituality today.

When Wiesel was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, the Norwegian Nobel Committee called him a "messenger to mankind," noting that through his struggle to come to terms with "his own personal experience of total humiliation and of the utter contempt for humanity shown in Hitler's death camps," as well as his "practical work in the cause of peace," Wiesel had delivered a powerful message "of peace, atonement and human dignity" to humanity. (Summary and quotation courtesy of Wikipedia)

In this novel, Raphael Lipkin, a professor of mystical traditions and a Holocaust survivor, comes to the Mountain Clinic to study the relationship between madness and prophecy. He is seeking among these madmen, who believe they are Cain, Abraham, Joseph, the Messiah, some fragmentary truth, some fleeting epiphany. Why did he survive? "And what about God in all this?" In this brilliant and powerful interweaving of past and present, dream and vision, fantasy and reality, Wiesel has synthesized his earlier and ever continuing concerns, journeying from the Holocaust world of his "Night and Dawn" to the twilight realm of madness, mysticism, and prophecy.

The author's signature appears on title page. The volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. Intact dustjacket, with photograh of the author on the rear cover, is in mylar. The book measures approximately 6 1/2" x 9 1/2" and contains 217 pages. Please note that additional signed Wiesel titles are being offered in this auction. See lots 142 and 340. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
