The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper

New York: J.B. Lippincott, 1973. First printing of this edition, and first American edition in hardcover. INSCRIBED in the year of publication on the front endpaper to Denver Post book editor Clarus Backus: "For Clair and Earlene / Thank you for one of those very good, very rare evenings / John D. MacDonald / 14 July '73." Laid in is a sheet of Denver Post stationery, a clipped article from The Denver Post by Ms. Backus about MacDonald's death, and a glossy Doubleday review photo from 1968, for the book "Three for McGee."

Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket. Bookplate of noted collector Duke Collier on the front pastedown. Jacket is lightly rubbed at the extremities, with a touch of the usual fading on the spine. A very nice and extremely scarce presentation copy of a key Travis McGee title.
