Fine copy of first printing of first edition in fine Brodarted dust jacket. Black boards with pumpkin lettering on spine, pumpkin end papers. Story based on Lowry's trip to Mexico in 1945-1946, unfinished at the time of his death. Another descent into the abyss. 400 pp, including 75 pages of bibliographic sources and reference footnotes. Lowry was forever editing his work, so McCarthy presents the manuscript from the UBC archives with Lowry's exact words and marginalia. You can see how and how much Lowry's writing evolved through his drafts. The thought process set forth in the marginalia is very interesting. We specialize in Malcolm Lowry literature and criticism.
