$45.00

Novelist, environmentalist, and historian Wallace Stegner produced a collection of texts that capture the essence of the mythological American West like no author before him. Often referred to as the Dean of Western Writers, Stegner’s classics are wrought with the generational hopes, misconceptions, and dreams associated with American westward expansion and rural life. In turn, Stegner was honored with the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1972 and the National Book Award in 1977. Recapitulation is one of his most praised novels and a quintessential example of his usual themes and settings. The sequel to Big Rock Candy Mountain, Recapitulation continues the narrative of Bruce Mason who grapples with death, meaning, and familial history. This limited first edition by the Franklin Library is a handsome presentation of the work. It is a necessary volume for any collectors of Stegner or Western literature in general.

This limited first edition is in fine condition. In the original firebrick leather boards, elaborately gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. With the publisher’s original First Edition Society pamphlet laid in.
