Pleased to add another George Scarbrough book to the collection. “Invitation to Kim” was a finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. The East Tennessee native produced three books between 1949-1956, which each contain some of the finest southern poetry I’ve read. “Invitation to Kim” is part of his later work and was published in 1989. I have posted his poem “Postcard Woodcut” here for a sampling of his work. Thank you to @thebookeddy for this copy, signed and inscribed in Fine condition. A rare hardback copy. #georgescarbrough #invitationtokim #pulitzerprize #irispress #rarebooks #firstedition #bookcollection #bookcollecting #bookcollection #bibliophile #bookporn #bookhunting #bookstagram #modernfirsts #modernfirsteditions #finebooks #signedbooks #shelfie #southernliterature #southernlit #tennessee #appalachianlit #appalachianliterature #kentucky #northcarolina #virginia #westvirginia #appalachianpoetry https://www.instagram.com/p/CP9OU7FsEzw/?utm_medium=tumblr

I’ve taught Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness” several times and I’m always shocked how tightly written it is. Environmental concerns, race relations, gender roles, colonialism, place theory, untrustworthy narrator, and the list goes on. Powerful and succinct. Really a classic. I’m offering this copy up for sale. Limited Editions Club. Appears to be unopened and unread, though it lacks the black slipcase. Near fine condition, sheep’s vellum spine. Signed by Robert Shore, numbered 335 of 1000. $200. Message me for more details. . . . . . . #josephconrad #heartofdarkness #limitededitionsclub #firstedition #rarebooks #bookcollecting #bookcollector #bookcollection #americanliterature #britishliterature #polishliterature #modernfirsts #firsteditionbooks #bookstagram #bookhunting #bibliophile #bibliophiles #shelfie #bookporn #collectablebooks https://www.instagram.com/p/CFiMjUqpIWM/?igshid=139wb80dp7w16
