New York: Doubleday, 1969
First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title page: “For Richard Widmark, / hoping we’ll meet later on - / Elmore Leonard / Sep 1969.” A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Widmark starred in the novel’s film adaptation the following year, playing the role of Dr. Emmett Taulbee. Although Leonard expresses hope with this presentation that he and Widmark might work together again, The Moonshine Wars would be their only collaboration. A very significant copy, having been inscribed by the author to an acclaimed actor with a prominent role in the film adaptation.
