Item #10251 Ship of Fools. Katherine Anne PORTER.

Ship of Fools

Boston/Toronto: Little, Brown & Co., (1962).

Signed by Katherine Anne Porter

This bestselling novel outsold every other American novel published in 1962.  The story was based on a journal Porter kept in 1931 during her sea voyage from Mexico to Germany, and the characters in the novel were based on real people she met during the trip.  The 1965 film adaptation by Abby Mann was directed by Stanley Kramer and headlined a galaxy of stars including Vivien Leigh, Oskar Werner, Jose Ferrer, Simone Signoret, Lee Marvin and others.  It won Oscars for cinematography and art direction.  This First Edition copy -- a tight, square, absolutely fine example in flawless original dust jacket – is seldom seen in such perfect condition.  Boldly signed on the half-title by Katherine Anne Porter.
