The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The ARC is now scarce. Pictorial softcovers, as issued. Text by James Lee Burke. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents James Lee Burke's "Cimarron Rose". His beloved masterpiece. "A beautiful writer. His descriptions are glorious. One can almost see the ghost of Billy Bob's partner, feel the Texas thunderstorms, and see the town of Deaf Smith" (Library Journal). Firmly labeled as a "mystery writer", James Lee Burke is an American literary treasure, and more than any other living "mystery writer", his novels completely inhabit and transcend their genre at the same time. An absolute "must-have" title for James Lee Burke collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by James Lee Burke. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. The author has virtually stopped doing public signings since his arthritic condition worsened in recent years, making signed copies of his books highly collectible. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Advance Reader's Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMES LEE BURKE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 10164
