HET MONSTER in de KELDER (THE HAWKLINE MONSTER).

Bussum, Netherlands: Uitgeverij Agathon, 1977. First edition thus. Paperback. A PRESENTATION COPY inscribed by Brautigan to actor Margot Kidder, 1948-2018, on the title page,"This copy is for Margo Kidder / wishing you good luck / with your movie / Richard Brautigan / San Francisco / August 6, 1978." Kidder and Brautigan were friends during the heyday of the 'Montana Gang' in the 1970s, Pine Creek, Montana. Perfect bound in the original wrappers, with front cover illustration and photo of the author on back panel. RB's comment "...wishing you luck with your movie..."' was probably referring to Kidder's role in Superman (1978), when she played opposite Christopher Reeve, and won a Saturn Award for her portrayal of Lois Lane. A very good plus solid copy of the author's best novel about two western era bounty hunters dispatched to kill a monster who lives under a victorian house in an ice-cave. Item #13955
