AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse. Groucho Marx. AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse.
(Beverly Hills: A & M Records Inc. 1972). First edition. A&M SP3515. Double album with single leaf insert. INSCRIBED BY GROUCHO ON FRONT COVER in purple, "To Barbara a good nurse and a nice woman / Groucho." It is likely the inscription is to Barbara Winger Bruner, who worked for Marx in 1977, the final year of his life. (According to a 1983 UPI Bulletin, Bruner testified in a lawsuit filed by Marx's estate against Erin Fleming, the Canadian actress who was Marx's companion, characterizing her actions as "hostile and abusive.") This best-selling album was recorded at Carnegie Hall during Marx's last one-man show. The insert features a pictorial collage and quotes from celebrities including T.S. Eliot -- "Your portrait hangs on my wall next to W.B. Yeats. You are my most coveted pin-up. And I am your utmost admirer." Fine.

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.
