1 Mailer, Norman Advertisements for Myself
New York Putnam 1959 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Norman Mailer, who also authored The Naked and the Dead, has been one of most controversial as well as provocative writers. There is no one quite like him either in writing style or in attitude. This book is in Near Fine condition with square corners and very little shelf-wear. The boards are bright and clean and the lettering on the spine has fared well over the years despite a very small amount of fading. There are a couple of small tape ghosts to the front pastedown and the ffep. They are a bit over 1/4" and are hardly a factor. This also appears on the rear free endpaper. These marks are really small. The binding is tight and the textblock is entirely clean with virtually no toning. Advertisements for Myself is a collection of Mailer's short works over the years. It includes short stories, essays, short novels, and other forms. However, it is a collection like no other because its separate pieces are woven together by an autobiographical narrative which is startling in the candor of its confessions. The writing runs from old fashioned fulmination to Satanic wit and is thoroughly enjoyable. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

2 Mailer, Norman Naked and the Dead, The
Franklin Center PA Franklin Library 1979 1st Thus Full-Leather Fine No Jacket Signed by Author
This is the Beautiful Franklin Deluxe edition of Norman Mailer's first and most famous novel. Published in 1979 on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the book's original appearance, this copy is bound in full leather with gilt decorations on the boards and the spine. It is signed by Norman Mailer and there is a tissue guard protecting his signature. There is a bound-in ribbon bookmark and all of the edges are gilt. The volume is in fine, unread condition although there is some very slight wear from age to the top edge gilt. This book makes a wonderful presentation. The Naked and the Dead has been hailed as one of the finest novels to come out of the second world war and the greatest combat novel ever written by an American. It is written in down-to-earth, journalistic detail, and the story follows a platoon of marines who are stationed on a Japanese-held island. The Naked and the Dead is representative of the finest in Twentieth century American Writing. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
