Superlative crisp copy of a book usually found in subpar condition.. First Edition. Second state jacket with a price of $7.95 and no white border around the author photo on the rear of the jacket.

        Oars Messages - Seamail

      [Easthampton, NY. 2013]. Unique artist's book, hand-written and hand-painted by the artist / author, Barry McCallion on cream Rives BFK and black St. Armand paper, signed and dated the printed colophon, "Barry McCallion / January 2013." Page size: 11-15/16 x 9-3/8 inches; 28pp. Bound: loose as issued housed in custom-made black cloth over boards clamshell box with large red "X" - cancellation stamp - on front of box with collaged "stamp" 1-1/8 x 2 inches, hand-drawing in black ink showing oarsman rowing in boat within a roundel, titled OARS MESSAGES with square, cross, circle, and double circle in each of the four corners, title in black on white paper label on spine, fine. The text is written in white ink on black St. Armand paper and the "cancelled stamps" are drawn in black india ink and colored with Winsor & Newton inks, including silver metallic. The artist / author notes that this book contains notes in the Oarsman's hand (not legible)and cancelled stamps unique to the messages of 1973. "The Oarsman resolved on his journey in 1970. As he spent the next two years organizing his departure and provisioning his boat, these are his earliest - as well as his most elaborate attempts to communicate. The Oarsman's journey is not without precedents; Joshua Slocum or Odysseus explore and engage the world from the 'boat of self.' Any journey - long or short, actual or fictional - becomes a pattern for life. These drawings afford us a glimpse of the Oarsman. The stamps are cancelled. If we are inclined to be generous, we can infer that they (and he) arrived at their destination." Barry McCallion continues his exploration of the narrative of his created world (or is it his observations of this world?) through chance word and particular image. His creation of the Oarsman - a sailor / traveler who rows (backward of course) towards his mythical destination - is intriguing. His voyages may be autobiographical or completely haphazard. He hoists his sails or locks his oars and is off - and we follow, observing from the sidelines, to places we otherwise would not go. See an Image.

        Hollow Hills SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1973. First Edition. Signed by Author. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 'Readers of The Crystal Cave (and there are many millions of them) will not be the only ones who will find enchantment and delight in The Hollow Hills. In her new novel Mary Stewart tells the story of Merlin, and of the boyhood of Arthur from his birth to his accession to the throne of Britain. The countryside of England and Wales in the Dark Ages forms an almost tangible background -- with changing seasons, green rides through dark forests, and Merlin's retreat in the Westmorland hills -- to this wonderfully and powerfully realised picture of an ancestral hero coming to manhood; painfully distinguishing friends from enemies but never failing to perceive and to follow his destiny. And behind and around him is the strange, strong yet vulnerable figure of Merlin, who sees and knows so much but who must suffer, along with the rest of his turbulent countrymen, the pangs of a nation in strife, embattled kings and courtiers, hurried journeys and sudden death. What a world Mary Stewart has brought before the entranced reader in The Hollow Hills! Book - in Very Good green boards with gilt lettering - light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme bottom of the spine, minor mark to the bottom edge of the front board. Contents, light spotting/browning to the extreme page edges otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound. Dust Jacket - Very Good - a nice bright colourful jacket - light creasing to the extreme corners, minor closed tear to the top of the spine repaired with archival tape. Signed by the Author.
