Self-Portrait: Ceaselessly Into The Past, Ross Macdonald.

Ralph B Sipper [Edited And With An Afterword By]

First edition. 8vo. Limited to 250 copies numbered and signed by both the author and Eudora Welty, who wote the Foreword.. This is copy 194. Fine in full black leather. "Kenneth Millar (aka Ross Macdonald) did not sit down and write an autobiography as such; it has arrived of itself, in its own time, and is an accretion - a circumstance that seems characteristic of this modest and meditative man. When this writer's concentrated gaze does take in himself, it is direct and central. What we have is the clear, the clarified, result of long thoughts. ....we are quietly offered not details but essences."--Eudora Welty, from the Foreword.
