Near Fine and unread in illustrated wrappers. Faint crease at the left edge of front panel from being opened, a triffle rubbing to the red on the rear panel, and an unobtrusive sticker pull on the upper right corner of the front endpaper. An extremely scarce critical work on Cormac McCarthy's 1985 masterpiece 'Blood Meridian.' The work began as Sepich's Master's thesis, and evolved into what is likely the most authoritative critical work on McCarthy's writing. Sepich's manuscript was published to coincide with "Cormac McCarthy: The First Conference,' which took place at Bellarmine College in Louisville, Kentucky in October of 1993. 'Notes on Blood Meridian' was published by the newly established Bellarmine College Press in a run of approximately 700 copies. The book was given to each attendee of the conference, with an additional 50 copies being sold. Afterwards, sales of the book lagged, and a few years later the remaining copies sold to the McCarthy Society, where a copy was given gratis to each new member of the Society until the run was exhausted. Much like the novel, Sepich's book has a mystique all it's own. Copies of the book in collectors condition, or indeed in any condition, are quite scarce, with most copies either being heavily read or full of marginalia. A superb copy. Sepich, Arnold xv-xvi.
