    Cormac McCarthy's Epic Trilogy, All Signed

    Cormac McCarthy. The Border Trilogy, including: All the Pretty Horses; The Crossing; Cities of the Plain. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1992, 1994, 1998. First editions. Each volume signed by the author, All the Pretty Horses signed on the title-page, The Crossing and Cities of the Plain are signed on special tipped-in sheets stating that they are one of one thousand copies signed by the author on the special tipped-in sheet. Three octavo volumes. Publisher's black cloth over black paper boards with front covers and spines stamped in gilt. Original pictorial dust jackets. Light rubbing to jackets. Fine copies.

    Cormac McCarthy's almost mythic trilogy -- a startling and powerful modern classic of the Southwest that propelled McCarthy to international mainstream literary acclaim -- is comprised of three stand-alone novels. All the Pretty Horses, the National Book Award-winning first novel in the trilogy, is now a staple on high school reading lists, and is, perhaps, McCarthy's most popular work. A beautiful first edition set of the trilogy, rarely found with all volumes signed.
