Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry
First edition, first printing of McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the West, signed by the author to the title page and from his personal collection, bearing his bookplate to the verso of the front board.
New York: Simon & Schuster: 1985. A near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square. Minor shelfwear and rubbing to boards and edges, corner of text block lightly rubbed, stray pen mark and a date written on the flyleaf, else clean. The unclipped dust jacket shows just a trace of shelfwear, protected in archival mylar. A very attractive copy.
