    First edition, corrected, with page 105, line 12 "skyscrapers." Neatly signed by McMurtry on half-title page. Inscribed by publisher William Wittliff, on rear colophon. Octavo. 177 pages.

    Publisher's full gold cloth with paper spine label and author's facsimile signature stamped in black on front board. A fine copy in dust jacket.
