About the Forthcoming Publication The Thinking Man's Dog by Ted Patrick: Being a LETTER from John Steinbeck explaining why he could NOT write an introduction for this book

New York: Random House 1964, 1964. First Edition. Goldstone A41. Publisher’s wrappers; fine in a custom slipcase and chemise. Presentation copy; inscribed inside the front wrapper by the author, “For Bob Keene From John & Charley Steinbeck.” The recipient was a bookshop owner in Southampton, New York, a Sag Harbor friend of Steinbeck, and almost certainly an acquaintance of the late Charley. In the printed letter, which is, of course, an introduction, Steinbeck mentions the death some months earlier of Charley, his poodle companion in 1962’s Travels with Charley.
