Cunningham, Michael. LAND'S END: A WALK IN PROVINCETOWN. New York City, NY: Crown Publishers, 2002. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 175 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The author's book-length account on subject. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The second volume of the "Crown Journeys" Series, which now include some of the brightest stars in the literary firmament, who descend on a particular place that has special significance for them. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Michael Cunningham's "Land's End: A Walk In Provincetown". The single best title in the "Crown Journeys" Series. "One of America's oldest towns (incorporated in 1720), one of the most idiosyncratic and extraordinary towns in the United States, perched on the sandy tip at the end of Cape Cod" (Publisher's blurb). "Extraordinary. Reminds us that the essence of a place cannot be found in any guidebook" (Time Out). "Informed, sensitive, and as to be expected from Cunningham, a lyrically moving and word-perfect work of art" (Library Journal). An absolute "must-have" title for Michael Cunningham collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by Michael Cunningham. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. "A Home At The End of The World" was selected as one of "The 200 Best Novels in English Since 1950" by The Modern Library, the most prestigious list of its kind for the period 1950-1999. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature and The Pen/Faulkner Award in 1999 for "The Hours". One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy.
