New York: Random House, 1976. First Edition. Quarto. Issued simultaneously in hardcover and wrappers, this being the wrappered edition. INSCRIBED by both McPherson and Williams, to business author Alan Newgarden, on the title page.
McPherson's interest in railroads grew out of his experiences working as a dining-car waiter for the Great Northern Railroad in the early 1960s. He was the first African-American to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, in 1977, for his story collection "Elbow Room."
Light foxing to the top page edges, and light shelfwear to the corners, else Near Fine in illustrated wrappers. Most uncommon thus.
