1 McCarthy, Cormac All the Pretty Horses (The Border Trilogy, Vol. 1)
New York, NY, U.S.A. Knopf 1992 0394574745 / 9780394574745 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. Octavo. 302pps. There is a tidy gift-inscription on the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is second state with green lettering on the front flap and the five-blurb (w/Publisher's Weekly) rear panel. It is perfect except for the price being clipped (thus, Near Fine). Overall, an excellent, highly presentable copy of this winner of both The National Book Award and The National Book Critics Circle Award. ".A critical triumph, this is the story of John Grady Cole, who at 16 finds himself at the dying end of a long line of Texas ranchers, cut off from the only life he has ever imagined for himself. To escape a society moving in all the wrong directions, Cole and two companions decide to seek their future in Mexico, a land at once beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. But what begins as an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, leads, in fact, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood. Within months, one of the boys is dead, and the other two aged beyond their years. A story about childhood passing, innocence and an American age, here is a grand story and an education in responsibility, revenge, and survival. 'All the Pretty Horses' is truly a masterpiece. Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
