About This Item

New York: Presses de la Renaissance, 1983. First French-Language Edition. Softcover. Small crack and light rub top of spine else very good.. First French-Language Edition. Softcover. Translated by Brice Matthieussent. First novel by the author of WILD AT HEART and others. An interesting copy, from the library of Marshall Clements, with his ownership mark - the letter "M" - on the front flyleaf. Clements is not only the dedicatee of the novel - designated "pour M.R.C." on the dedication page - but is also, in a sense, the novel's hero, as the protagonist is clearly based on Clements' life. Laid into the book is a brief handwritten (but unsigned) note from the author - clearly to Clements - which reads, in full, "Do you believe this!?" A fascinating, if somewhat cryptic, dedication copy of the first French edition of Gifford's first novel - LANDSCAPE WITH TRAVELER. Original wrappers with publicity belly-band. PLEASE NOTE that all our First Editions are also First Printings, unless we specifically note otherwise. All our dust jackets are protected in clear mylar covers.
