Title: ALL THE PRETTY HORSES. ---- THE CROSSING. ---- CITIES OF THE PLAIN. The Border Trilogy.
Description: Alfred A. Knopf. New York.,1992-98. FIRST EDITIONS. 1st impressions. Three Volumes. 8vo. (8.6 x 6.1 inches). Fine, bright copies in the publishers fine original dustwrappers, designed by Chip Kidd. A fine set of true first editons of this hugely popular trilogy. There is some confusion about a probable trial issue dustwrapper for the first title, with no advance praise notices on the lower panel and lacking the blue capital letter 'A' at the start of the blurb inside the front flap. This wrapper was not officially issued with the published book. The first edition wrapper, as issued on day of publication, has the price of $21.00 on the inner front flap and the number code '5/92' at the bottom of the inner rear flap. The wrapper on All the Pretty horses in this set has both of these points.------ All the Pretty Horses was filmed, directed by Billy Bob Thornton, in 2000. The film was not a commercial success, but after both critical and box office triumphs for Hollywood adaptations of Mccarthy's works since, a film version of the third novel in the trilogy, directed by Andrew Dominik, is due for release this year (2012).:
