The Night of Trees [Signed Association Copy together with Two Letters from Williams to the inscribee]

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1961. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. WILLIAMS, Thomas. The Night of Trees. NY, Macmillan, 1961. A novel of Leah, New Hampshire, the fictional town in which most of Williams' stories and novels are set. Inscribed and signed by Williams to Sylvester Bingham, Chair of the English Department at the University of New Hampshire, where Williams was employed: "To Bing, Whom I respect so much - Tom." With a typed letter signed from July, 1958 and with its original mailing envelope and an autograph letter signed from July, 1961, each loosely laid in. The first letter, in Fine condition and of about 250 words, mostly concerns arrangements for settling in in Bristol, though Williams concludes by saying his new novel is shaping up well. The second letter reports that the prepublication review by Kirkus of The Night of Trees "is bad, but what the hell? I haven't got books yet, but when I do I'll send you one." He provides Bingham with illustrated directions to his house, and reports that despite a broken left wrist, his novelette is about half done. About 125 words, this second letter is a bit sunned and edge-worn from overhanging the book and is in near fine condition. The book itself has a foredge stain and is near fine in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket with a few edge tears. Williams was an influence on an entire generation of writers who worked or studied in New England. He was nominated for the National Book Award in 1959 for "Town Burning" and won in 1975 for "The Hair of Harold Roux" Near fine / very good. Item #929
