    Description

    Larry McMurtry. Leaving Cheyenne. New York, Evanston, and London: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1963. First edition. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. 8vo. 299 pages. Original tan cloth over boards with titles and decoration printed in black and red on the front board and spine. Some trivial toning to the boards and at the edges of the pages, otherwise a very good copy in a price-clipped, toned dust jacket with a slightly faded spine panel.

    Basis for the 1974 Sidney Lumet film Lovin' Molly with Anthony Perkins, Beau Bridges, Blythe Danner, and Susan Sarandon. One of the fifty best books on Texas according to A. C. Green. This copy bears a gift inscription from author Lewis Meyers under McMurtry's signature on the front-free endpaper.
