Western author best known for his classic first novel Shane.


This first edition, in the rare unused variant dustwrapper, was offered privately in 2006.
We offered this first edition, inscribed by the author to "Jack Palance" in our Catalog 73. In reality it was inscribed by the author for a noted book collector (who had jokingly asked the author to inscribe it to the actor) and as far as we are aware the late actor never saw this copy.
