IN A NARROW GRAVE: Essays on Texas. Larry McMurtry. IN A NARROW GRAVE: Essays on Texas.
Austin: Encino Press, 1968. First edition, second issue with "skyscrapers" p.105:12 versus "skycrapers" in the first issue. Reportedly all but 15 of the first issue were destroyed, although we think a higher number, maybe 30 to 50 actually exist. Essays on Texas, mainly west Texas where the author grew up. We've always liked this first book of essays which starts with "Here's HUD in Your Eye." We think the author is a very good essayist and would like to see more. Fine in dust jacket with tiny chips on corners and bottom spine edge, spine just barely rubbed and a few faint creases, otherwise close to fine.

ENGLAND YOUR ENGLAND; and Other Essays. George Orwell. ENGLAND YOUR ENGLAND; and Other Essays.
London: Secker & Warburg, 1953. First edition. Eleven essays, most of which make their first book appearance herein. Orwell wrote the title essay, "England Your England," as Nazi bombers flew overhead during The Blitz of 1941. Uncorrected proof in gray paperwraps printed in black on front only. Corner chipped from lower front cover corner and first few leaves bumped, otherwise very good. Scarce, if not rare in this fragile format. Housed in custom, brown cloth clamshell case with gilt-stamped leather spine label. "As I write, highly civilised human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me."
