New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960
First edition. First printing. Signed by the author on the title page. A bit of toning to the contents as usual, but otherwise a fine copy. In a very good or better, unclipped dust jacket, with slight rubbing and edge wear. A lovely example overall of Doctorow’s debut novel, a historical fiction about the battle between good and evil in small settlement in the Dakota Territory. A significant work in reviving the Western genre, indeed exemplifying the “New Western.” Adapted into film starring Henry Fonda in 1967.
