    Larry McMurtry. In a Narrow Grave: Essays on Texas. Austin: The Encino Press, 1968.

    First edition, limited to 250 hand-numbered copies and signed by the author in ink on the half-title page and designer William D. Wittliff on the recto of the rear free endpaper. Octavo. 177 pages.

    Deluxe quarter suede binding and tan paper over boards. Titles stamped in gilt on the spine and against a black background on the front board. Edges untrimmed. A few pages uncut. An exceptional copy, free from defect and protected by a Mylar cover in the original cloth slipcase which features a facsimile of McMurtry's signature on one side.
