Larry McMurtry has long been a favorite of booksellers and readers. His novels inspired such beloved films as TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, HUD, and THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, but, as John Jakes has said, LONESOME DOVE is "McMurtry's masterwork." A genuine word-of-mouth bestseller in hardcover, Lonesome Dove is an extraordinarily satisfying American tale, full of unforgettable characters from the dusty little town of Lonesome Dove, Texas, and their sweeping journey across the last savage wilderness of the frontier that lives on in our legends. We're proud to share with you this special advance reading copy of the Pocket Books edition of LONESOME DOVE. Sincerely, Irwyn Applebaum." Housed in the original decorated red slipcase with title to spine and author facsimile signature in gold. A close to fine copy in the original perfect bound decorated wrappers in the publisher's original slipcase. Item #14656
