London: Faber and Faber. Signed Limited Edition. Hardcover. One of 250 numbered copies signed by Van himself. Featuring a foreword by Paul Muldoon and introduction by editor Eamonn Hughes. The second volume of Van's selected lyrics containing 120 songs from his storied career. Love songs, work songs about the pains and anxieties of existence, songs of consolation, songs about various kinds of spiritual quest and the realms of the mystical, and songs which deal with healing and reconciliation, both with the self and with others. Then there are the songs of memory and of childhood; songs about the natural world and about the perspectives it can provide on time, which can exist both in various secular forms. There are songs of falling leaves and evening shadows, of joyous sounds and whining-boy moans; there are songs of wisdom and grace. There is also a long-standing concern with 'the voice of silence' and many tributes to the voices of musicians and writers who have been significant for Morrison. Hardbound with the original publisher's slipcase. Isssued sans dust jacket. As new still in the publisher's wrapping (unopened). Item #14587
