Stephen Vincent Benet, John Brown’s Body Limited Edition, Signed
The Civil War in Verse
Stephen Vincent Benet’s John Brown’s Body lives beside Carl Sandburg’s volumes and John Ford’s film as the perfect portrayals of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War to Depression-era Americans.
A classic American folk-epic; a narrative of the Civil War in the form of a poem. Modern readers sometimes forget the power of inter-war masterpiece. Adapted and performed as a Broadway production in 1953.
Crack at seam (see pics); Lightly soiled boards; usual toning; slipcase reconstructed in stern brown cloth with original paper and labels; near fine; signed copy #23. A collector’s copy!
