"GIRL MEETS GIRL ON THE PRAIRIE"

MCMURTRY, Larry. Buffalo Girls. New York: Simon & Schuster, (1990). Octavo, original half red cloth, original dust jacket. $500.

First edition of this Wild West novel, inscribed by McMurtry on the title page, "For Roswitha Mott. Girl meets girl on the prairie. Larry McMurtry."

McMurtry recounts the story of Calamity Jane, "a woman whose past embraces the whole short, violent, passionate history of the West," and her last bittersweet adventure as a member of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Recipient Roswitha Mott is a member of the family that has run the antiquarian book business Howard S. Mott since 1936. McMurtry's well-known engagement with the rare book trade began in his twenties as a book scout, and he ran his own book store, Booked Up, for over 40 years.

Fine condition.
