Description:
New York: Random House, 1965. First edition of McCarthy's first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author in a contemporary hand on the front free endpaper, "To John Sheddan Cormac McCarthy." The recipient, John Sheddan was a close friend of McCarthy's. "Some of McCarthy's friends claim that the character Gene Harrogate (a character in McCarthy's novel, Suttree), or at least his watermelon venture, was based in some way on John Sheddan, "scholar, schemer, hustler, melon paramour" (Gibson 23)... However in a letter of response to Gibson's article, Knoxvillian Buzz Kelley writes that Sheddan was "probably McCarthy's best and most loyal friend from the Knoxville crowd," holder of two master's degrees, and not at all "a violator of vegetables nor one to fornicate with fruits" (Dianne C. Luce, Reading the World: Cormac McCarthy's Tennessee Period). Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Muriel Nasser. Housed in a custom half morocco… Read more

New York: Random House, 1965. First edition of the author's rare first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the title page in a contemporary hand. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some light wear to the extremities. Jacket design by Muriel Nasser. Books signed by McCarthy are uncommon, especially his earlier novels. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world— a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ‘The ugly fact is books are made out of books,’ he says. ‘The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.' "Cormac McCarthy is expert in generating an emotional climate, in suggesting instead of in stating, in creating a long succession of brief, dramatic scenes described with flashing visual impact" (The New York Times).

Description:
New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Howell Pearce with best wishes Cormac McCarthy." The recipient, Howard Pearce was a close friend of McCarthy's and a Memphis poet. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Jack Ribik. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate,… Read more

Description:
New Orleans: B. E. Trice, 2005. Fine.. Deluxe signed limited edition of this neo-Western thriller, one of McCarthy's best-known works and the basis for an Oscar-winning film. Known for his "brutal and spare" narratives, Cormac McCarthy has been called "one of the greatest living novelists" (Cowley, THE GUARDIAN). NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a major work of the McCarthy canon, exploring fate and futility in the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong in rural west Texas. A MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, and National Book Award-winner, McCarthy's reputation has been extended further with the success of the Coen brothers' Hollywood adaptation of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, which won four Academy Awards including Best Picture. This deluxe edition is highly sought for its beauty, a highlight for any McCarthy collection. 8.75'' x 5.5''. Original half burgundy leather with marbled boards, gilt lettering to spine.

Description:
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, [3] pages. No. 34 of a limited edition of 350 copies, signed by McCarthy at colophon. Faintest bumping to lower corner of text block.

It was adapted into a film in 2000, starring Matt Damon and Penélope Cruz. It is difficult to find examples inscribed by McCarthy. Octavo.

Description:
New York: Random House/ Modern Library, 2010. First edition of the 25th anniversary of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Roger Andrews Best Wishes Cormac McCarthy." The recipient and McCarthy were friends in El Paso, Texas. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Richard Adelson. Jacket painting by Salvador Dali. 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).

Publisher's brown leather backed marbled boards, the spine lettered in gilt, red cloth slipcase. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches; 309 pp. Fine.In No Country For Old Men, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border setting of his famed Border Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning's headlines. A fine copy of the signed limited edition of No Country for Old Men, made into the 2007 Best Picture winning film by the Coen brothers with Tommy Lee Jones as Ed Tom Bell, Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh and Josh Brolin as Llewelyn Moss.
