FIRST EDITION OF GADDIS’ FIRST BOOK, THE RECOGNITIONS

GADDIS, William. The Recognitions. New York: Harcourt, Brace, (1955). Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $1800.

First edition of Gaddis’ important first novel.

"The Recognitions is an astonishing first novel… the subsequent course of post-war American fiction has confirmed Gaddis's achievement: his erudite and sophisticated satire on the mechanisation of human emotion and commercialisation of religious and artistic experience provides the model for many later (and better-known) writers" (Parker, 319-20).

Book very nearly fine, dust jacket with only light wear mainly to extremities. An attractive, near-fine copy.
