1 Eggers, Dave You Shall Know Our Velocity
Brooklyn, NY, U.S.A. McSweeney's Books 2002 0970335555 / 9780970335555 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
In Fine condition. Gray boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gray. Red endpapers. 371pps. No dustjacket, as issued. There is a very mild bump to the upper rear tip, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. No previous ownership markings. This is one of the scarce Stated First Edition copies, sold only on the author's website and preceding the trade edition. SIGNED by Eggers on the rear pastedown (copyright page) -- without further inscription, but with a one-of-a-kind drawing of a bird with human ears. (This drawing refers to the legend of The Jumping People, a South American tribe of bird-worshippers who tried to emulate the birds' flight by jumping off the cliffs, hoping that in time they would learn how to fly. These Jumping People, according to the novel, left a message on the cliff above their village, carved in stone, for the conquistadors to find. The Spaniards later translated this message as 'YOU SHALL KNOW OUR VELOCITY'-- which gives the novel its title.) A beautiful collector's copy. Laid in is a photo of the author doing the signing.

"...Everything within takes place after Jack died and before my Mom and I drowned in a burning ferry in the cool--tannin-tinted Guaviare River, in East-central Colombia with forty-two locals we hadn't yet met. It was a clear and eyeblue day, that day, as was the first day of this story, a few years ago in January, on Chicago's North Side, in the opulent shadow of Wrigley and with the wind coming low and searching off the jagged half-frozen lake."
