Now, Voyager

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1941. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original green cloth (binding somewhat askew, some rubbing and wear to the spine ends, some rubbing through to the board corners) in a Very Good + example of the uncommon dust jacket with less wear than we typically see and a small tape repair to the dust jacket's verso. (The front flap is price-clipped, but the rear free endpaper's verso has a small sticker showing the correct $2.50 first edition price.) One of her best-known novels, "Now, Voyager" presents presents a pioneering consideration of psychotherapy, and provided the basis for the 1942 movie of the same name in starring Bette Davis, as well as for a radio drama starring Ida Lupino and produced by Cecil B. de Mille on the Lux Radio Theater. One of her best-known writings, "Now, Voyager" explores the psychology its main character, Charlotte Vale, who has suffered under the domination of her overbearing mother. Charlotte is treated by a psychiatrist, Dr. Jaquith, and her treatment fictionalizes Prouty's own therapy. Dr. Jaquith encourages Charlotte live life to the fullest and to take to heart the words of Walt Whitman, "Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find." A Very Good copy in a better example of the SCARCE DUST JACKET than we usually see. QUITE UNCOMMON. Very good / very good +. Item #898
