ANYTHING FOR BILLY. Larry McMurtry. ANYTHING FOR BILLY.
New York: Simon & Schuster, (1988). First edition, in a RARE PROOF DUST JACKET with blank flaps and a completely different design. INSCRIBED on the front endpaper, "To Carmen/ A gloomy tale/ Larry McMurtry." We have never seen another proof jacket offered, which isn't to say there aren't others; but it was purchased from a former Simon & Schuster rep and, given its scarcity, is probably one of only a few produced. The proof jacket design more closely resembles the design of the jacket for LONESOME DOVE and is more attractive, to us at least, than the one the book was eventually issued in. It's hard to understand why they would have changed it. It was sold to us on a copy of the uncorrected proof; but we've put it on this inscribed copy of the book because it seems to us to be the best way to display it. It is slightly taller than the eventual, published jacket and therefore over-hangs the book by a scant eighth-inch and is just slightly loose. The book itself is fine and still in its original, fine dust jacket with the proof jacket (showing only minor wear) over it. RARE PROOF DUST JACKET.

TWO TYPED LETTERS, SIGNED. James A. Michener. TWO TYPED LETTERS, SIGNED.
While Associate editor of Macmillan's Educational Department, Michener suggested Mrs. Ella-Frances Barker as one of the authors in a proposed series of geography books for children. Mrs. Barker did not have time to complete the assignment and, unbeknownst to Michener, turned the project over to her young son. The first letter, dated December 30, 1946, is warm and chatty, signed "Jim Michener" and proposes a meeting between Professor and Mrs. Barker and Michener's managing editor, Philip Knowlton. The second letter, dated April 16, 1947, is written after receipt of the manuscript. Diplomatic and decidedly business-like (with not-so-subtle hints that the manuscript is not exactly up to par) it is signed "James A. Michener." Both letters are typed on Macmillan letterhead; the first on a single sheet, the second on two. The first has a very light stain at the head of the page, and light creasing where previously folded into sixths, but is otherwise fine and includes the original mailing envelope. The second letter is a little darkened and lightly creased along the edge of the first page, but is otherwise fine.
