About This Item

Los Angeles: Printed for Dawson's Book Shop at the Plantin Press, 1955. First Edition. Small Quarto. 42p. index of titles. Inscribed by LCP to Henry E. Starr on flyleaf. While the late Lawrence Clark Powell was a marvelous writer on the history of the book, his literary passion focused on the Southwest both in terms of its history, literature, and culture. Issued in a small print run in the Great Southwest Travel Series, Larry Powell here has listed and annotated over 100 of the great classics of the region. He read each of these and wrote about many in Southwest Classics but here is an important list of the region primarily comprised of Arizona and New Mexico where in spite of an often punishing climate a richness emerges which should appeal to the reader. Bound in ¼ beige cloth over brown paper covered boards printed in dark brown, tiny spot of wear to corners, in plain gray dust jacket , spine lettering red. This copy has the original dust jacket though there is a large chip on the spine, so the spine reads: Heart of the S[outhwest].
