Cadillac Jack

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1982

8vo, pp. 395. Original grey three-quarter boards, lettered in green on red to spine. Printed dustwrapper. Red endpapers. A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper with just a little sunning to spine.

First edition, INSCRIBED BY McMURTRY TO FELLOW WRITER AND BOOKDEALER NELSON BOND: 'For Nelson -- This rather peculiar book about a peculiar place Larry'.

McMurtry's tribute to treasure hunters, starring Cadillac Jack, rodeo rider turned itinerant antiques dealer, and coiner of the bookdealer's mantra: 'Anything can be anywhere'.

The book is inscribed to McMurtry's friend and fellow rare bookseller, the pulp and science fiction writer Nelson Bond [1908-2006], making this a book about antiquarians, inscribed by its antiquarian author to his antiquarian friend.

A superb copy.
