About this Item

Yes, this 368 page wonder, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The binding is Green cloth boards with silver on spine and front board, and this gem is rock solid, tight and clean, unbumped but does have some very light overall age-darkening on the exterior. True first edition denoted by the "A" on the copyright page. Bright colourful dust jacket has done its job well in protecting the book while suffering some modest edge-chipping of its own. But not to worry or be sad, for said imperfection is made considerably less objectionable, since, on the very positive side of things, the jacket is now and forevermore protected from any future ambient abuse and resulting degradation by professionally fitted and applied yet instantly removable Brodart mylar. in protective mylar. Jacket drawings by Robert Camp Jr. with decorations throughout book by Edward Shenton who also did the drawings for The Yearling. This inventive, vivid and fascinating narrative by the author of The Yearling has all the humor and incident, the same human and boundless appeal as its Pulitzer Prize winning predecessor.Here are brilliant and fascinating descriptions of the Florida swamps, the scattered homesteads, and of the animals and reptiles of the region. The reader sees, and knows, Cross Creek in every season of the year.Any one of the people in this book might well be the hero or heroine of a full-length novel, and the background against which they move is everlastingly fascinating. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED.
