New York, NY.: Pantheon Books. Very Good. 1995. 1st Edition1; First Printing. Hardcover in dust jacket. This book is hard-bound in brown paper covered boards, with a tan cloth spine, with gilt stamping to the upper cover and spine, in a very nice dust jacket with light soiling. The covers show some light edge-wear and light rubbing to the corners and spine-ends. The binding is solid. The contents are bright and clean, with nice color illustrations. This book is signed by the author Terry Tempest Williams on the title-page and by the illustrator Mary Frank on the half title-page. From the collection of Cuthbert Christian Thambimuttu (1945-2019) of Columbus, Ohio - known to many of his bookseller, author, and illustrator friends as "Tubby." He was persistent in the pursuit of autographed books by the writers and artists he admired, including Gorey, Sendak, Heaney, Byatt, Morrison, Updike and many more. Joseph Heller once wrote to Tubby in response to one more "please sign and return" request: "This is turning out to be a hell of a lot of work!" All signed books unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic. Many of the books are inscribed to both Cuthbert and his great friend of more than two decades Antonia Gale Moss. . (Inventory #: 76484)
