SIGNED. 569pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Light green cloth with gilt stamped titles on the front board and backstrip, and an embossed oval wreath design on the front board. Top and bottom edges trimmed. Green endpapers. Good plus. The faded spine is rolled, the spine ends are bumped, and the gilt on the spine is no longer bright. The spine and covers are a bit stained, with the most prominent stain being a small, dark stain near the foot of the spine. The underlying boards are peeking through at the corners. There are multiple spots of discoloration on the front endpaper. Else the pages are clean, and the book is sturdy. No dust jacket. Colberg A22.1.a.
Winner of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Wallace Stegner described 'Angle of Repose' as "a novel about Time, as much as anything--about people who live through time, who believe in both a past and a future." Inscribed by Stegner on the half title page.
