Description:
New York, NY, U.S.A.: Harper & Row, 1970. The true first edition (stated on copyright page with the number line on the second to last page ending in the number "1") of the author's first book and the first Joe Leaphorn. Dampstaining to back of bottom of dustwrapper (not evident from front). Dustwrapper shows one 1/3" closed tear to top of front panel and scuffing to top of spine. Overall, the book and purple dustwrapper show as "tight and clean" (especially in the mylar protector). Might be a printer's copy, because it has technical information on type-setting written on the ffep. in pencil. A very respectable copy at a "respectable" price. Laid in is a bookplate inscribed to me by the late Mr. Hillerman. . Signed Bookplate. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/VG+.

Description:
New York: Harper & Row, 1970. First edition. Hardcover. Hardcover. First edition. The author's first book that introduced Joe Leaphorn. A near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Wear to the extremities, some crimping to the bottom of the front panel, wear to the rear panel and minor sunning to the jacket spine. Correct first edition with number line on last page ending with a "1." A very presentable copy with an early signature and inscription by Hillerman to an unknown friend of his: "You'll see I finally got that manuscript published. But I've got to go back & try again to do a better job with Navajos. Tony Hillerman." Apparently written for a friend who had been following Hillerman's attempts to get his book published. Signed with Hillerman's early straight T signature. He certainly succeeded, writing 18 novels that featured detectives Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. Signed by the author.
