Loot of the Week 8 May 2015

The first editions I ordered for this week arrived today, and what a splendid loot! By now, you probably would have recognized my collection pattern, which is mainly on Roth, Pynchon, McCarthy, DeLillo, Morrison, and fiction winners from the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award (NBA), and the National Book Critic Circle Award (NBCCA).

This week, we have the true first editions of Roth's work from the Franklin Library, and assorted trade first editions of various prize winners, including Edgar Lawrence Doctorow's World's Fair (NBA, 1986), Billy Bathgate (NBCCA, 1989), and The March (NBCCA, 2005).
