    Description

    Dalton Trumbo Signed Book. The most famous writer of the Blacklist era's "Hollywood Ten," three-time Academy Award winner Trumbo (1905-1976) - who said famously of that tragic time,"There were no heroes or villains, only victims" - wrote The Devil in the Book, an examination of the Smith Act and the suppression of free speech, published in 1956. The California Emergency Defense Committee published a limited run of 750 copies of this 42-page paperback book; this is no. 48, and Trumbo signed the inside cover in full and in red ink. The book measures 5.5" x 8.5," has some cover wear and staining, with Trumbo's signature clean and neat. This is a very book and especially desirable form for a writer famous both cinematically and politically. Very Fine condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
