New York: Modern Library, 2010.

The 25th Anniversary edition of the author’s fifth novel, published by Modern Library. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half-title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket.

"Blood Meridian seems to me the authentic American apocalyptic novel, more relevant even in 2000 than it was fifteen years ago. The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and of Faulkner. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable as Blood Meridian." (Harold Bloom) McCarthy can only be compared with our greatest writers, with Melville and Faulkner, and this is his masterpiece" (Michael Herr).
