New York: Random House, 1985. First Edition. Near Fine/Very Good +. Presentation inscription on the half title to environmental writer and prolific Western author Edward Abbey: "For Ed, With all best wishes, Your friend Cormac." Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Abbey's widow. McCarthy rarely inscribed copies of his books, and his personal association to Abbey makes this rare book even more exceptional. Prior to Blood Meridian, McCarthy had modest success subsidizing his writing with grants but had yet to sell more than 5,000 of any single title. Abbey, meanwhile, was known as one of the most prolific American writers, using his books as a passionate call to readers to protect the natural resources and open lands of the West. In a letter from McCarthy to Abbey, McCarthy describes how he got "boxed out" while hiking Big Bend near Moab, and after retracing his steps and locating his car, he "drank some water and ate something and opened the book [he] was readin ...

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. An excellent example in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Richard Adelson. 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).

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).
