    A Beautiful First Edition of One of McCarthy's Most Acclaimed Novels

    Cormac McCarthy. Blood Meridian or the Evening Redness in the West. New York: Random House, [1985].

    First edition. Octavo. 337 pages.

    Publisher's red quarter cloth with red paper boards and gold stamping. Minimal rubbing to the book and dust jacket, with a couple of tiny spots on the page edges. On the Epilogue page a previous owner has written "7/25/85" in ink, about one-quarter-inch in height, on the bottom of the page, probably indicating when he or she completed reading the novel. A fine copy, housed in a custom chemise and slipcase.

    One of McCarthy's most acclaimed novels, Time magazine included Blood Meridian in its "TIME 100 Best English Language Novels from 1923 to 2005."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
