First edition. Fifth volume in the series. SIGNED BY ROTH ON TITLE PAGE and with Enrico Adelman's Bloomsday Books stamp at base of final page listing the titles in The Library of America Series. Adelman and Roth became fast friends in 1989 when Roth stopped by his NYC sidewalk bookstand. Over the ensuing years, up until his death in 2018, the notoriously publicity-shy Roth signed thousands of books for his friend to sell. This is one such copy. Fine in fine dust jacket.

Hardcover. Etat : As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 765 pages. Published in 2008. Volume Five of The Library of America's definitive Collected Works of Philip Roth. The First Slipcased Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a Slipcased Edition for distribution to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies was sold to the public. The Slipcased Edition has the same ISBN as the regular trade edition. The Slipcased Edition is now rare. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant, each volume is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Without DJ, as issued. Presents Volume Five of The Collected Works of Philip Roth: "The Counterlife", "The Facts", "Deception", and "Patrimony". Masterworks, entwining fiction and autobiography, which is essentially Roth's idea of the modern narrative: "The Counterlife" (1989), "The Facts" (1987), "Deception" (1990), and "Patrimony" (1991). "One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" (Cynthia Ozick). "Our foremost novelist since Faulkner" (Harold Bloom). Philip Roth was only the third writer to be so honored by The Library of America while still alive. Published in chronological order, the entire oeuvre consists of ten volumes in all and will surely be regarded as one of the "high spots" in The Library of America Series. Roth famously announced in 2012 that he has permanently stopped writing. Philip Roth died on May 22, 2018 of congestive heart failure, literally of heartbreak, at the age of 85. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy of Volume Five is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Library of America Slipcased Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright. Please note: The First Slipcased Edition was distributed to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies was sold to the public. Copies available online have serious flaws, have the bookstore's stamp, or are subsequent printings yet command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Six of Philip Roth's novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1598530305. Signed by Author.
