First US editions, first printings (each with a "First Edition" statement and complete number row - "2 4 6 8 9 7 5 3" on the copyright page - the publisher's way of designating its first printings at the time). The set of three books - Killing Mister Watson (1990), Lost Man's River (1997), and Bone by Bone (1999) went on, in an edited version, to become the one volume Shadow Country (Modern Library, 2008) which won the National Book Award. This is essentially a flawless set, in 'as new' condition. Each book is crisp and unread, each jacket with no visible wear, unfaded, uncreased and unclipped. And, each volume has been signed (in my presence) by Mr. Matthiessen on the full title page, in ink, just below his printed name. I will mail this set anywhere in the continental US for the cost of one book ($4.50) - priority or international shipping would be extra (quotes on request). Also, photos on request.
