Shane (First Edition)
Houghton, Mifflin, Boston 1949 - First Edition. The author's first book, one of the best Westerns ever written, which in 1953 was adapted into one of the best films the genre has ever seen (with a script by A.B. Guthrie, Jr.), in which a lone gunfighter comes to the aid of a small community. Though not nominated, Alan Ladd gave an Oscar-worthy performance. Jack Palance, despite saying only 12 lines, received an Academy Award nomination for his creepy, career-defining role. A classic which transcends the genre and can be appreciated on many levels. A little foxing to the fore-edge else fine in a price-clipped Fine dust jacket that has undergone some professional restoration at the extremities.A nice copy of a desirable and exceptionally uncommon book.In a custom quarter leather clamshell box. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
