New Orleans: B.E. Trice, 1998. Fine in fine slipcase.. Beautifully bound limited edition of the third volume of McCarthy's Border Trilogy. Following McCarthy's ALL THE PRETTY HORSES and THE CROSSING, CITIES OF THE PLAIN returns to characters John Grady and Billy Parham, struggling to make a living on a drought-stricken cattle ranch near the Southwestern border of the United States and Mexico. Critically praised, with reservations (as Sara Mosle noted in THE NEW YORK TIMES, "the most complex and sympathetic female character in the trilogy may be a wolf"), McCarthy's bleakness of vision and his cascade of mythic imagery still hold great power. A remarkably beautiful and untouched copy of this major work. 8.25'' x 5.5''. Original three-quarter gilt-stamped brown leather with marbled boards. Brown endpapers. In original gilt-stamped brown cloth slipcase. 291,  pages. No. 34 of a limited edition of 350 copies, signed by McCarthy at colophon. Faintest bumping to lower corner of text block. Appears unread.
