Holy the Firm
NY, Harper & Row, (1977). A small book of poetic meditations on the problem of pain and on how a just God would allow "natural evil" to occur in the world. This copy is inscribed by Dillard to the writer Richard Adams, author of Watership Down and his wife in the year of publication: "For Richard and Elizabeth Adams, with very best and warmest of fond wishes/ Annie Dillard/ Bellingham Washington/ Nov. 21, 1977." Adams had written the introduction to the British edition of Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek in 1975, and a copy of that edition is included here. Offsetting to the boards from the dust jacket, mild foredge foxing; near fine in a fine dust jacket. [#033621] SOLD
