    First edition (first printing). Box opened and bellyband peeled up from box edges (the only way to open the package). The Bookman pamphlet signed by McMurty and Bonner.

    In addition to the regular contents of this collection, this copy includes a hand-corrected proof of "The Bookman" (the changes are in an unknown hand, but almost certainly not McMurtry's); a trade copy of The Bookman inscribed by Bonner; an extra bumpersticker; and a white-on-white Booked Up logo sticker, perhaps a trial item. A unique assemblage.
