MCCARTHY, Cormac. Cities of the Plain. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1998. Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket.

Signed limited first edition of the final novel in McCarthy's acclaimed "Border Trilogy," one of 1000 copies signed by the author on a tipped-in leaf.

"That brief moment between a culture's existence and extinction—this is the border that McCarthy's characters keep crossing and recrossing, and the one story, as he's forever writing, that contains all others. Throughout the trilogy, we keep encountering witnesses—former revolutionaries, priests, gypsies — in whose testimony alone human history survives? McCarthy testifies to the passing not only of individual cowboys but an entire way of life" (New York Times).

A fine signed copy.
