The Oysters of Locmariaquer
NY, Pantheon, (1964). Winner of the 1965 National Book Award for Arts and Letters. Inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen] and his wife, "with love & thanks" in 1965. A good association copy: Matthiessen would win his first National Book Award the following year, for At Play in the Fields of the Lord. Clark was married to Robert Penn Warren, himself a National Book Award winner, at the time she published this book. Very good in a very good, spine-sunned dust jacket. [#032460] $250
