Bound for Glory First Edition inscribed and signed by Woody Guthrie - Guthrie, Woody. Bound for Glory. E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., New York, 1934. Octavo. Stated First Edition. Black cloth, spine and front board stamped in gilt. Slight rubbing, a trifle cocked, rear hinge starting. Original priced dust jacket exhibits chips and paper loss at corners and upper rear panel, but remains very bright. Inscribed in green ink the year of publication on the front free endpaper, “To Louis Jones – All I hope is that you’ll find enough fighting in this book to prove Hitler was wrong when he called us a nation of sissies. Woody Guthrie.” Autobiography and first book by one of America’s finest songwriters and perhaps best known for his song “This Land Is Our Land.” Quite scarce in first edition, especially so in dust jacket. This book served as the basis for the film starring David Carradine as Guthrie. Very good.
