7 Richards, David Adams The Coming of Winter
Ottawa Oberon Press 1974 0 88750 128 1 / 9780887501289 First Edition Hard Cover Good Fair Inscribed & Signed by Author
The first novel from a guy who has gone on to win a wheelbarrow full of awards, and who has become one of Canada's most respected (and collectible) writers. This copy inscribed and signed by Richards ("To Rick Burns/God Bless/Keep Writing/Yours/Dave Richards") on front end paper. The Rick Burns in question died in late 2004, but not before making a name for himself as an award-winning painter and sculptor (and yes, he wrote, too). Since the pair were fellow Miramichi-ers and acquainted with each other, this was quite likely signed in the year of publication. An entirely legible inscription and signature from Richards, something which has become considerably less common, replaced by a pretty much indecipherable scribble, as his star rises higher and higher. Black cloth w/yellow spine lettering, 259 pages, cover illustration by Michel Leclair. A much-read copy, w/slant, edgewear, some wear to corners/spine ends, spotting, some edge soil, in rubbed dust jacket w/edgewear, many impressions/scratches, short edge tears, general wear.

(A word about our grading: Fine -- or, sometimes, As New -- is our highest grade, and it's down from there. "Mint" is a word referring to a delightful flavour or an imposing edifice where coins are produced. It may be acceptable where baseball cards or comic books or coins and the like are concerned, but it has no place in the terminology and protocols of the book world. None. Zero.)
