MCCARTHY, Cormac. The Crossing. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994. Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $1600.

First trade edition of the second novel in McCarthy’s “Border Trilogy,” signed on the half title by him.

The second novel in McCarthy's acclaimed "Border Trilogy," The Crossing "presents a sharp-eyed revision of the meaning of the West in the American consciousness" (Chronology of American Literature). It is "a miracle in prose, an American original… If it will put readers in mind of Faulkner, Twain, Melville and Shakespeare, it will also put them in mind of Hemingway, Flannery O'Connor, Cervantes, Beckett [and] Conrad… There isn't anyone remotely like McCarthy in contemporary American literature" (New York Times). Issued the same year as a signed limited edition, no priority established.

A fine signed copy.
