A UK first edition, first impression. Larry McMurtry's copy, with his distinctive bookplate affixed to the front pastedown.
WRAPPER: The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded, and complete. As with all the copies of the UK first that we have seen, it has been clipped but still retains the price £2.50. Looks very sharp.
BOOK: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages are clean and bright. The closed page edges are sound - the top edge is lightly flecked. No foxing. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. An attractive copy in a protected wrapper.
