From Here to Eternity

Author: James Jones

Published by Collins in 1955.

First British publication of the novel. Used book but in overall good condition. Dust jacket torn on the top and on the spine. Spine and binding in good condition. Some damage to the back cover. Pages in good condition with moderate tanning. No inscriptions. Inscribed by the author on the title page “Autographed for the Mistral Bookshop by James Jones”. Includes an original sticker from the Mistral Bookshop (now Shakespeare and Company) on the first page. Coupled with a second book : a French translation dating from 1952, title Tant qu’il y aura des hommes. Poor condition, no jacket.

James Jones was one of the early visitors of the Mistral Bookshop . It also seems that it was at a dinner party for James Jones who had recently moved to Paris that Silvia Beach announced to G. Whitman that she would concede the Shakespeare & Co. name to him.

James Jones was an American novelist known for his explorations of World War II and its aftermath. His experience of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor led to his first published novel, From Here to Eternity. Jones was awarded the National Book Award in 1952 for From Here to Eternity, which was then adapted for the big screen in 1953.
