Some Came Running (Signed First Print), Jones, James
1 Jones, James Some Came Running (Signed First Print)
New York Scribner's 1957 First Hardcover 
First Edition/First Printing 1957. A handsome and near fine copy in a very good dustjacket. This copy is flatsigned by the author on the title page. The author's second book after "From Here To Eternity"--which was perhaps the finest WWII novel written. This copy has light age toning with one lightly bumped corner only--near fine. The dustjacket is price clipped with a few chips to the upper part at head of spine and flap corners--however the DJ overall is bright and attractive. No interior markings or flaws. Jones saw immediate success and critical acclaim with his first novel---however this did not continue with "Some Came Running"--which was blasted by the critics. Over the years, this novel has had time to appeal more to a wider audience and is regarded with more acceptance in the overall body of his work. A very collectable copy priced right. 
Price: 170.00 USD

Jones' 4th Novel and this one, like "From Here To Eternity" is also about WWII--and was also made into a film. First Edition with "A-662(H)" on the copyright page. Note: Digital photo shows some glare from the dustjacket protector.
