1 Dickey, James; Bake, William A.Wayfarer: A Voice from the Southern Mountains
Birmingham, AL Oxmoor House 1988 0848706919 / 9780848706913 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Fine 4to - over 9" - 12" tall William A. Bake 
Stated first edition. Oversize book bound in 3/4 maroon cloth and grey paper over boards. 177 numbered pages + 4 pages which contain an additional photograph and a Catalogue of Photographs. Book is tight and clean, interior pages unmarked; top and bottom edges of grey portion of boards are darkened, and front free endpaper has a gift inscription: "From Marian, 1988." Dust jacket is fine. There is a $50.00 price sticker covering the original DJ price, but this seems to be underneath the lamination of the jacket and thus may have been done by the publisher. ~~ Award-winning poet-author Dickey shares the wonder of life in the southern mountains through the poignant voice of an old mountain man who encounters a traveler. Stunning full-color, many full-page, photographs by Bake, one of the South's premier landscape photographers, and representing all the major ranges of the Appalachians, accompany the narrative. Dickey re-creates the haunting voice of his own people, and Bake supplies the backdrop. A gorgeous book. In clear archival cover. This large, heavy book may require additional postage.

On the art of Nordic photography, this is the definitive volume." -dust jacket. A beautiful book.
