The Long Wait

New York: Dutton, 1951. First Edition. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in fountain pen, “Hi Ruby - Sorry I didn’t get to see you - but a hello at long range anyway and I hope you like this latest rumble - Sincerely - Mickey Spillane.” Signed again in felt-tip pen on the title page, “Mickey Spillane, Feb. 12, 2000.” The verso of the front free endpaper and the half-title have long narrow stains, probably from a previously mounted clipping; these stains bleed through faintly to the front free endpaper and the list of his books opposite the title page; small shop stamp above the first inscription; very good in dust jacket.
