New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994 First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth and black paper boards, lettered in gilt; in the original white pictorial dust jacket designed by Chip Kid, with a photograph of cattle skulls by Melanie Acevedo to the front panel in sepia, lettered in black. About fine, with a tiny spot to the top edge, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a few faint scuffs, else fine. A bright and very attractive copy. The Crossing is Cormac McCarthy's second installment in his Border Trilogy, which begins with All the Pretty Horses (1992) and concludes with Cities of the Plain (1998). As the first novel published after McCarthy won the National Book Award in 1992 for All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing was met with much anticipation and high expectations. The second novel in the Border Trilogy upheld the high standard set by its predecessor: "An essential novel by any measure and the transfixing middle passage of Cormac McCarthy's ongoing trilogy, The Crossing is luminous and appalling, a book that touches, stops, and starts the heart and mind at once.". 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included. (Inventory #: CMC013)
