"NOUVEAU RICHE ONLY A FEW MONTHS EARLIER, NOW NOUVEAU BANKRUPT": FIRST EDITION OF TEXASVILLE, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY LARRY MCMURTRY

MCMURTRY, Larry. Texasville. New York: Simon and Schuster, (1987). Octavo, original half blue cloth, original dust jacket. $750.

First edition of McMurtry's sequel to The Last Picture Show, returning readers to the small town of Thalia in the aftermath of the 1980s oil boom, boldly inscribed on the title page, "For Roswitha Mott, Middle age in Texas—or anywhere, Larry McMurtry."

The Pulitzer Prize-wining writer's sequel to his third novel, The Last Picture Show (1966), "shows off the author at his popular storytelling best, and it attests, again, to his sure feeling for people and place… A wonderfully digestible book that leaves a lingering cloud of sadness in the reader's mind" (New York Times). 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.
