1 Kazin, Alfred Contemporaries
Boston Little Brown 1962 First Thus. Trade Paperback Very Good Book 
509 pp., Durable linen stiff-wraps with slight edge and corner rubbing. Previous owner's name on a preliminary page. Black slash mark on fore edge. No other markings, only slight toning. Binding strong. An anthology of dozens of Kazin's brief critical essays on authors ranging from Melville to mid 20th century standouts like Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, etc. Some of his highly personal, colloquial essays touch on political themes and current events of the 1950s. One piece I especially liked detailed the the crude Victorian editing of Emily Dickinson's manuscripts. Essays were originally published in New Republic, New Leader, Atlantic Monthly, Partisan Review and the like. Size: 8vo - 8 in. Tall 
Price: 8.00 USD
