FIRST EDITION, DELUXE ISSUE, SIGNED BY STEINBECK at the colophon, and limited to 1500 copies. When Steinbeck completed the manuscript of East of Eden, he had it delivered to his editor Pascal Covici in a mahogany box, with a letter that would be adapted for the dedication, in part: "Well, here's your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts—the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation." Goldstone & Payne A32a.
