Descripción

8vo. A highlight of Western literature and the source for the 1953 movie classic of the same name, but in a hitherto unknown proof jacket that depicts the Shane character standing in a saloon, his back to Wilson, the hired gun, who is ready to draw on him. Shane's hands hang loosely within easy reach of his gun holsters. The published jacket shows only Shane's head and comprises the entire front panel. The Houghton Mifflin archive at Harvard conclusively documents which of the two jackets precedes. A July 11, 1949, letter to Schaefer from the editorial department states: "I managed to get hold of a rough proof of the jacket and have been warned by the art department that this jacket is being remade and possibly the head will be bigger." A subsequent letter to the author, dated August 18, 1949, conveys a proof copy of the published jacket which Schaefer, in a letter dated August 23, 1949, commends: "Thanks for the proof of the new jacket for Shane . an improvement over the first one." [The cataloguer respectfully disagrees with this opinion]. Rare. Fine in a fine example of the wraparound dust jacket (lightly sunned at the spine) and housed in a custom-made leather clamshell box. First edition of the author's first book. N° de ref. de la librería 20941
