A LETTER FROM JOHN STEINBECK.
by Steinbeck, John
Limited to an edition of 150 copies printed in black and red at the Grace Hoper Press by Sherwood and Katharine Carruth Grover. A keepsake of one of John Steinbeck's letters to Katharine Grover's father, who was a professor at Stanford during Steinbeck's time as a student there. Includes a brief note by Grover explaining why Steinbeck was writing to her father. The letter itself is in regards to a question posed by Professor Carruth about Steinbeck's previous experience writing poetry, and, is, as Grover writes, "a small ray of light on the young Steinbeck, whose ability to think and write was even then discernible" in his humorous reply. Minor shelf wear.
