[very light bumping at several corners and base of spine, very slight deterioration to cloth at base of spine, small date stamp on ffep; jacket a bit scuffed and edgeworn, one slightly ragged closed tear and associated creasing at top of front panel, small chip at top of rear panel, minor paper loss at spine corners]. (B&W photograph) The first book-length biography of Dean to appear after his death, by a friend (and former UCLA classmate); issued simultaneously in paperback, this is the much scarcer hardcover printing. Many years later, Bast published another book, "Surviving James Dean," that touched on certain aspects of the actor's life that were a little too sensitive to be aired in the 1950s. The striking jacket photo of Dean (by Roy Schatt) is also reproduced inside the book.
