TWO NEW DIRECTIONS PUBLICATIONS BY THOMAS MERTON: ' A MAN IN THE DIVIDED SEA' AND 'FIGURES FOR AN APOCALYPSE.'


MAN IN DIVIDED SEA IS COPYRIGHT 1946 AND PRESUMABLY A FIRST EDITION. THERE IS A LENGTHY GIFT INSCRIPTION TO FFEP, WHICH WE BELIEVE IS ALMOST CERTAINLY BY THE AUTHOR. IT READS: '12.25.51. WITH THE DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO YOU, ALICE DEAR--YOU WHO HAVE BECOME A 'SMITHY OF MY SOUL,' WHO HAVE GIVEN ME GENEROUSLY OF AN INSPIRED FRIENDSHIP, AND WHO HAVE BROUGHT INTO SHARPER RELIEF A VISION OF GOD.' AND THEN THERE ARE THE INITIALS 'FL' MERTON SOMETIMES SIGNED HIS BOOKS WITH HIS MONASTIC NAME 'FATHER LOUIS.' AT ANY RATE HIS INSCRIPTIONS ARE SCARCE AND THIS IS A PARTICULARLY NICE ONE.


THE OTHER TITLE IS A SECOND PRINTING. BOTH VOLUMES ARE WORN, DJ'S WITH EDGE TEARS AND FADING.


 


NO RESERVE!!!!
