THE BEETLE LEG
Second issue of first edition with rust-colored cloth, spine stamped in black. A near fine copy in a very good jacket with some minor chipping at spine ends, small scratch to front panel with minimal paper loss. A handsome copy overall.
Hawkes' second novel, a surreal western parody, has become one of the landmarks of post-modern literature, and is considered among the best American novels of the second-half of the 20th century.
