My First Summer in the Sierra.

McCurdy, Michael (illus.)

Covela, CA: Yolla Bolly Press, 1988. Large quarto. 162pp. Published in an edition of 150 copies, of which 45 were specially bound and contained an extra suite of plates signed by the artist, Michael McCurdy. This is one of thirty Roman-numeral copies bound in brushed cowhide. The twelve wood engravings McCurdy created for this edition were inspired by following Muir's travels on foot in the Sierra Nevada in 1869. During this time, Muir was in the midst of a Thoreauvian living experiment, inhabiting a cabin along Yosemite Creek. The grandeur that infuses Muir's text is ably captured by McCurdy, whose style here is reminiscent of Paul Landacre's California Hills. Bound in full brushed cowhide and housed in the publisher's yellow pine box with cowhide label on upper cover, accompanied by the extra suite of plates in a handmade paper chemise. Very fine. Item #29915
