CASE OF THE MUSICAL COW (Intimately Inscribed)
Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE MUSICAL COW. New York: William Morrow, (1950). First Edition. A NEAR FINE Copy (tiny bit of shelf wear, boards a tiny bit dusty) in the original and very attractive VERY GOOD ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (which has a little bit of chipping to the spine tip, some creases, one spot of abrasion to the front panel). INSCRIBED on the front-free endpaper:"To Tee, with salutations from one writer to another and lots of love to boot, Yours, Erle." Underneath this, the author has signed his name in full: "Erle Stanley Gardner/May 1950." The recipient, although little is known about her, is clearly (from the inscription) someone Gardner cared deeply about. Erle Stanley Gardner occasionally signed copies of his books for friends and people he worked with but rarely did he inscribe a book so intimately. See our other copies from the same primary source by using key words Tee Rose. Bookseller Inventory # 001300
