About this Item: Random House, NY, 1977. First Edition. 8vo, pp. 303. A very good copy in torn dj (lacks the rear panel) Inscribed by the author to poet William Jay Smith: "For Bill Smith | on the occasion | of a wide-sparzd visit | from Shelby Foote | Memphis | 30 Dec 92" from Wikipedia: "Shelby Dade Foote Jr. (November 17, 1916 - June 27, 2005) was an American historian and novelist who wrote The Civil War: A Narrative, a three-volume history of the American Civil War. With geographic and cultural roots in the Mississippi Delta, Foote's life and writing paralleled the radical shift from the agrarian planter system of the Old South to the Civil Rights era of the New South. Foote was little known to the general public until his appearance in Ken Burns's PBS documentary The Civil War in 1990, where he introduced a generation of Americans to a war that he believed was "central to all our lives." Foote did all his writing by hand with a nib pen, later transcribing the result into a typewritten copy.". Seller Inventory # 58240

About this Item: Palaemon Press Limited, Winston Salem, 1981. Paperback. First edition. 4to. One of 140 numbered and signed copies, of which 40 were numbered I-XL (for private distribution) and 100 were numbered 1-100. This copy is #71 and is signed by Shelby Foote on the colophon page. First separate publication. Foote, famous for his trilogy of the Civil War, responding to the observation that it took him five times as long to write about the civil war as its participants took to fight it, he pointed out that "there were a good many more of them than there was of me." Inspired by the works of Tacitus, Thucydides, Gibbon and, more surprising, Marcel Proust, Mr. Foote's own specially prized writer for prose style, psychological insight and the sweep of his vision, he created a history as written by a novelist, with due bows to a line that included Tolstoy, Stendhal and Stephen Crane. A fine copy in the original tall blue wrappers with cover label. Seller Inventory # 13798

About this Item: The Dial Press, New York, 1951. First edition of Foote's third novel which anticipates much of the subject matter of his monumental Civil War trilogy. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Dennis Cross from Shelby Foote 13 Oct 90." The recipient was a friend of Foote's. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Love in a Dry Season describes an erotic and economic triangle, in which two wealthy and fantastically unhappy Mississippi families, the Barcrofts and the Carrutherses, are joined by an open-faced fortune hunter from the North, a man whose ruthlessness is matched only by his inability to understand the people he tries to exploit and his fatal incomprehension of the passions he so casually ignites. Combining a flawless sense of place with a Faulknerian command of the grotesque, Foote's novel turns a small cotton town into a sexual battleground as fatal as Vicksburg or Shiloh, and one where strategy is no match for instinct and tradition.

About this Item: Dial Press, New York, 1952. First edition of Foote's classic fictional re-creation of the battle of Shiloh in April 1862. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Shelby Foote on the half-title page. Bookplate, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Rare signed. Shiloh owes much to William Faulkner in the slow, elegant cadence of its storytelling. Its narrative also resembles Stephen Crane's "The Red Badge of Courage"; a similarity reinforced by the fact that Foote wrote an introduction to an edition of Crane's work some forty years later.
