Outer Dark, Cormac McCarthy
First UK edition, first printing of McCarthy's second novel. A particularly nice copy in the original striking dust jacket designed by Michael Heawood.
London: Andre Deutsch, 1970. Publisher's original black cloth boards, spine lettered in silver; pp. (ii), 238. A near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Binding remains tight and square, minor dent to spine and virtually nonexistent wear to boards, light foxing to edges of text block. The dust jacket is bright and vivid, with a similar small dent to spine, traces of shelfwear and a small bookshop price to front flap. A very presentable copy, protected in archival mylar.
