Doerr, Anthony. ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE: THE POWELL'S "INDIESPENSABLE" LIMITED EDITION. New York City, NY: Scribner, 2014. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 535 pages. As New/As New.

The author's second breakthrough novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition, issued as a Powell's "Indiespensable" selection. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the regular trade edition and copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. Published in a very small and limited print run as an "Indispensable" title whose limitation is not stated. The "Indiespensable" Limited Edition is now rare. The production is elegant: It comes in a blue cloth slipcase and with a bonus "Author Interview" Booklet that is available through this special edition only. Presents, in its most beautiful collectible format, Anthony Doerr's "All The Light We Cannot See". "About a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer whose sentences never fail to thrill" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Anthony Doerr collectors. This is a copy of the Powell's "Indiespensable" Limited Slipcased Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Anthony Doerr. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as most copies available online are. This title will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is one of very few copies of the "Indiespensable" Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Its value will steadily and surely increase over time. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2015 for "All The Light We Cannot See". One of the most brilliant living American novelists. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 1476746583. $900.00
