Into Eternity: the Life of James Jones, American Writer
Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1985. Both the first edition and the uncorrected proof copy; both from the library of Peter Matthiessen, who makes several appearances in the text, including digging the hole at the gravesite for Jones's ashes. The book is very good in a very good dust jacket with a Compliments of Houghton Mifflin card laid in; the proof is near fine in wrappers. [#031954] $100
