Oil Notes

NY: Houghton Mifflin, 1989. First edition. Hardcover. Inscribed on the half-title page in the year of publication: "For Marc -- Best of luck and wishes -- Best, Rick Bass, Oxford '89."  Uncommon for also being inscribed by the book's dedicatee and illustrator, Bass's then-wife, with a separate pen: "For Marc, Best wishes, Elizabeth Hughes, Oxford, 1989." As of this writing there are no other copies signed by Hughes available, and it's an especially nice inclusion as this book is dedicated "To Elizabeth" and she is substantially a character in the book (for an example, see photo of page 3). This is Bass's fourth book; written in the style of a journal, it lyrically shares his expertise as an oil geologist and is simultaneously a "subterranean exploration of the self." With an opening epigraph from Peter Matthiessen's The Snow Leopard, and blurbs by Thomas McGuane, Annie Dillard, and Jim Harrison. A fine book in a near fine jacket with very subtle sunning to the spine. . Fine / Near fine. Item #1066
