The John McPhee Reader
NY, Farrar Straus Giroux, (1976). The hardcover issue of this collection that was issued simultaneously as a Vintage paperback. Collects sections from McPhee's first dozen books, along with an introduction by William Howarth and a checklist of McPhee's writings, which includes a number of unattributed "Talk of the Town" pieces from The New Yorker. Faint offsetting to the endpages; else fine in a fine dust jacket. A very nice copy of an uncommon McPhee title to find in hardcover, and an important title for McPhee collectors in the bibliographic information that it contains. It has been many years since we last had a copy of this book, and not for lack of looking. [#035112] $300
