ALL THE PRETTY HORSES, SIGNED BY CORMAC MCCARTHY
MCCARTHY, Cormac. All the Pretty Horses. New York: Alfred Knopf, 1992. Octavo, original printed paper wrappers, original printed paper sleeve. $1800.
Special publisher's advance review copy—in original wrappers and sleeve—of the first edition of the first novel in McCarthy’s acclaimed “Border Trilogy,” winner of the National Book Award, signed by the author.
"A taut, poetic evocation of the remote back country of south Texas and northern Mexico, strongly imagined and beautifully rendered by a very fine writer— one of our best—who deserves far more renown. The perception of horses is extraordinary, and Jimmy Blevins will take a place as one of the great characters of American literature" (Peter Matthiessen). There were a very small number, estimated at 250, of these advance review copies issued signed by McCarthy.
Fine condition, scarce and desirable.
