1 Abbey, Edward One Life at a Time, Please
New York, NY, U.S.A. Henry Holt & Company 1988 0805006028 / 9780805006025 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover 
As New in an As New dustjacket. Cherry-red boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is gilt-stamped. 225pps. A flawless collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact.

"...Warhorse, gadfly, iconoclast, storyteller, stylist, naturalist -- there is no simple category to contain the vibrant prose of Edward Abbey. And this snappy collection of essays displays the author of Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang at the height of his curmudgeonry. The range is wide: from stories about cattlemen, fellow writers, new and old cities -- especially a fresh look at San Francisco and the Robinson Jeffers land to the south -- and the inconsistencies of the technocrats, to thoughts on sin and redemption. Never has Abbey been sharper and funnier. The prose sparkles like the bright midday sun off desert sandstone."
