Shane (First Edition)
Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1949. First Edition. 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.
