The Last Picture Show

By: McMurtry, Larry

Price: $50.00

Quantity: 1 available


A misbound copy of, apparently, considerable scarcity. Pages 1 through 218 are fine, but are followed by a repetition of pages 187 through 218, with the story resuming at page 251, and pages 219 through 250 missing entirely. Obviously a copy for the McMurtry completist (or a Harry Stephen Keeler fan). Basis for the film of the same name (with screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winner McMurtry), which starred, among others, Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Ben Johnson, Cloris Leachman, and Ellen Burstyn. Sand cloth w/pink foil spine lettering, 280 pages + brief author biography. Lightly spotted top edge, tanning, spine lettering flaked and faded, moderate general wear. All in all an okay copy of an uncommon item that will suffice until you an scrape up a few hundred more bucks for a copy in a dust jacket.
