Description:

Five limited editions. Includes:

  • Crowley, John. Daemonomania. Norwalk: Easton Press (2000). The limited edition of the third book in the ambitious tetralogy that began with Aegypt, which was selected as one of David Pringle's 100 best fantasy novels of all time. Both Aegypt and the second volume of the tetralogy, Love and Sleep, were nominated for the World Fantasy Award. Issued in an edition of 1000 numbered copies, this is an out of series author's copy signed by Crowley. Leatherbound, all edges gilt, with a silk ribbon marker bound in. Fine.
  • Burke, James Lee. Bitterroot. New Orleans: B. E. Trice 2001. The limited edition of this novel featuring series character Billy Bob Holland, a lawyer and Vietnam vet. Of a total edition of 176 copies, this is one 150 numbered copies signed by the author. Fine in a fine slipcase.
  • Connelly, Michael. A Darkness More Than Light. New Orleans: B. E. Trice, 2001. A limited edition of Connelly's novel, which features Harry Bosch and Terry McCaleb, the protagonist of Blood Work. One of 400 numbered copies signed by the author. Fine in slipcase.
  • Carver, Raymond. Where I'm Calling From. Franklin Center: Franklin Library, 1988. he correct first edition of this title, preceding the trade edition. Leatherbound; page edges gilt; with a silk ribbon marker bound in. An attractive edition in the Franklin Library's "Signed First Edition" series, with an interesting introduction by Carver which does not appear anywhere else. Signed by the author. Because Carver died shortly after the publication of this collection, signed copies of this title are uncommon, other than the Franklin Library edition. Carver prepared this volume knowing that he was dying of lung cancer, and many of these stories, although they had been published previously, were revised for this edition and stand as his definitive versions of them. Fine in publisher's original shrinkwrap.
  • Chatwin, Bruce. The Songlines. Frankline Center: Franklin Library, 1987. By general consensus, Chatwin's best book -- a "novel of ideas," as the publisher puts it, of Australian aborigines, and the questions about man that arise from the vast gulf that separates the culture of contemporary, Western civilized man from that of the wandering tribes of Australia, whose "dream tracks" or "songlines" delineate both a physical and a psychic geography. The correct first American edition, published by the Franklin Library for subscribers as part of their Signed First Editions series. An attractively designed book, in black leather stamped in brown and gold, in a pattern suggestive of the Australian aborigines' "songlines" that give the book its title. With a special introduction for this edition, which does not appear anywhere else. Signed by the author. Chatwin's signature is uncommon; reclusive while alive, he died three years after the publication of this book, at the age of 49. Fine, in the publisher's original shrinkwrap.
