Condition: Very Good+/Very Good

Shane - Jack Schaefer (Rare Western 1st Edition Early Printing 1949 Hardcover w/ DJ) Lone Gunfighter Film Adaptation

**This book has a printing/binding error between pages 152-169, where pages 89-104 were duplicated and inserted at that location. In addition, pages 153-168 were never included in this copy.**

Please note that this is an early printing given the price and lack of subsequent printings; however it is NOT a first printing given the color of the hardcover and the title page does not list a year.

Copyright 1949, published by Houghton Mifflin Company (Boston). Dust jacket in protective mylar is price clipped. Jacket shows wear along the edges and hinges, as well as a black mark/streak on the rear. Blue hardcover has a heavily bumped spine tail and nick along the rear bottom-edge. There are a handful of pages (such as pg. 1-4, 5-8, 209-212, 213-end) that have not been "cut" so it appears the book has gone unread; some of the page ends in these sections have small tears. Also, there is the printing error outlined above that makes it impossible to read the entire story. Inscription on the front free endpaper; no other writing. Overall, it is in Very Good Plus (VG+) condition and an unusual copy for a collector wanting something unique!!!

Shane, a stranger the Starretts take into their home in Wyoming in 1889, becomes involved in a feud between the cattle ranger and the local homesteaders.
