The Orchard Keeper.

McCarthy, Cormac

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1965. First edition of the author's rare first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author in a contemporary hand on the front free endpaper, "To John Sheddan Cormac McCarthy." Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world— a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ‘The ugly fact is books are made out of books,’ he says. ‘The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.' "Cormac McCarthy is expert in generating an emotional climate, in suggesting instead of in stating, in creating a long succession of brief, dramatic scenes described with flashing visual impact" (The New York Times).

New York: Random House. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1985. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Coming from the personal library of Ed Abbey is an association copy of Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian"; inscribed by McCarthy to Ed Abbey, "For Ed With all best wishes Your friend Cormac." A very good copy with original dust jacket and red, half cloth binding. Dust jacket has a quarter inch tear at the top of the spine and light toning to inside flaps; boards have light sunning and foxing to top edge, and light wear to bottom, right corner; rear pastedown has three leaves pasted to back board; text block is clean and binding is tight. Research and experience handling McCarthy's works reveals that he rarely inscribed books, this inscribed copy being very rare. The inscription shows a level of familiarity, and the special collections department at the University of Arizona possesses 8 pages of correspondence between McCarthy and Abbey dating from 1986 and 1988.

The Orchard Keeper.

McCarthy, Cormac

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1965. First edition of the author's rare first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some light fading to the spine. Books signed by McCarthy are uncommon, especially his earlier novels. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world— a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ‘The ugly fact is books are made out of books,’ he says. ‘The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.'

Suttree.

McCarthy, Cormac

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a miniscule closed tear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate, often violent lives. "McCarthy is a writer to he read, to be admired, and quite honestly- envied" (Ralph Ellison).

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1985. First edition of the author's fifth novel. Octavo, original half red cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. "Blood Meridian seems to me the authentic American apocalyptic novel, more relevant even in 2000 than it was fifteen years ago. The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and of Faulkner. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable as Blood Meridian" (Harold Bloom). McCarthy can only be compared with our greatest writers, with Melville and Faulkner, and this is his masterpiece" (Michael Herr).

Child of God.

McCarthy, Cormac

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1973. First edition of the author's second novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Jimmy and Chris From El Paso Texas September 18, 1990 From your friend Cormac." Additionally signed in full by Cormac McCarthy below. The recipients were close friends of McCarthy. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Muriel Nasser. A nice association. In this taut, chilling novel, Lester Ballard--a violent, dispossessed man falsely accused of rape--haunts the hill country of East Tennessee when he is released from jail. While telling his story, Cormac McCarthy depicts the most sordid aspects of life with dignity, humor, and characteristic lyrical brilliance. Basis for the 2013 film bearing the same name, starring James Franco.

Outer Dark.

McCarthy, Cormac

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Random House, 1968. First edition of the author's second novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by Cormac McCarthy. Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy, uncommon signed and inscribed. Outer Dark is a novel at once mythic and starkly evocative, set in an unspecified place in Appalachia sometime around the turn of the century. A woman bears her brother's child, a boy; the brother leaves the baby in the woods and tells her he died of natural causes. Discovering her brother's lie, she sets forth alone to find her son. Both brother and sister wander separately through a countryside being scourged by three terrifying and elusive strangers, headlong toward an eerie, apocalyptic resolution. "A profound parable that ultimately speaks to any society in any time" (Time).
