London: Macmillan, 1970. First British Edition. Cloth. Near Fine / Near Fine in Plastic Cover. Item #592
A beautiful First Edition (U.K.) of Tony Hillerman's First Book, signed by Tony Hillerman, one of America's favorite authors. The book is Near Fine blue cloth with the very slightest touches of lightness on the spine ends, and two very faint marks on the page edges, all barely noticeable; otherwise very clean and bright. The Near Fine dustjacket is complete with original price intact and very light touches of soiling at the edges; the front and back panels are coated in light plastic so it is difficult to say if this has yellowed at all (it is cream-colored) but it has certainly protected the dustjacket from tears or scrapes; the interior of the dustjacket (next to the book) is pristine. One of the most desirable "First Books" by an American author, this is a beautiful copy in archival plastic cover by this revered writer who rarely signs any longer.
