THE AMERICAN TRILOGY; The American Trilogy: AMERICAN PASTORAL, I MARRIED A COMMUNIST, and THE HUMAN STAIN

New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1997, 1998 and 2000. In 2002, Philip Roth purchased some books and an autograph from me at my bookstore, not far from his house in Connecticut. This time, having run up a significant total, largely for an autograph by the writer Colette destined for a friend, he paid the bill by returning in the next few days with autographed copies of the three books that form The American Trilogy, taken from his own stash of copies of his books. The first and last books in the trilogy he presented to me are trade copies, one starting with"2" in the number line (see photographs). The middle volume, "I Married A Communist", issued in a slipcase, and without a dustjacket, is not only listed as an edition of two hundred, but also is letter "E" of what is commonly a limitation of 26. The books have been very carefully protected and sealed in a box since then, and are uniformly in the finest possible condition, straight from the hands of the author. They are each signed and dated 2002 by Roth in black ink on the title or limitation page. Uncommon, and unless Roth paid his bookseller bills this way elsewhere, unique. Item #7120
