Publisher's gilt-stamped black cloth over black paper boards. Binding very slightly cocked. Faint rubbing to cloth; a couple of minor scuff marks to boards. Lower corners of both boards gently bumped. Near fine in dust jacket. [and:] The Crossing. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994. First edition. Signed on second free endpaper. Octavo. 425 pages.

    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.
