First edition, first printing of McCarthy's third novel which depicts the life of a young outcast and serial killer in 1960s Appalachian Tennessee.
New York: Random House, 1973. A near fine copy in a near fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, minor shelfwear and rubbing to boards, a touch of foxing to edges of text block. Stamp and an erased price to flyleaf, else internally clean and fine. Jacket shows light edgewear, crease to front flap. A very nice copy, protected in archival mylar.
