The Old Man's Place. RADICAL LITERATURE, John B. SANFORD, pseud Julian Shapiro.

The Old Man's Place

New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1935. First Edition. Octavo. Cloth boards; dustjacket; 263pp. A brilliant copy, fully Fine in a nearly flawless dustjacket. Rarely seen thus.

Sanford's second novel (and the first using his nom de plume), set in Depression-era New York and dealing with a gang of ruthless game-poachers. Sanford went on to publish 24 books and several screenplays but, in the words of his bibliographer, he has remained "the finest unread author writing in English," owing in some degree to his intractability with editors but certainly also to his staunch leftist political leanings, which got him blacklisted during the McCarthy era. Not in Hanna.

Price: $200.00
