New York: The Dial Press, 1966. First edition. INSCRIBED BY MCMURTRY TO PAUL "DR. Z" ZIMMERMAN and first wife, "For Paul and Katie Zimmerman, How it is in Texas - or, at least, how it was - With my Best wishes, Larry McMurtry." Light foxing to endpapers and page edges otherwise fine in near fine dust jacket with red spine lettering mellowed to a dusty rose. A nice, clear signature and scarce thus. From the collection of sports writer Paul "Dr. Z" Zimmerman with his penciled notations on rear endpaper and corresponding passages marked in pencil in margins.
