3 MCMURTRY, LARRY, BARRY, FLORENCE V A Century of Children's Books by Florence V. Barry. Signed by Larry McMurtry
New York George H. Doran n.d 
Larry McMurtry's copy, signed by him. Illustrated with stills from the film. A used and worn copy with hinges starting and with some edge wear without dust jacket. A literary reference book. A dedicated book man, McMurtry opened the first Booked Up book store in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. in 1970. In 1987, along with his sister, Sue Deen, he opened The Blue Pig Book Shop in the small Texas town of Archer City, which in 1988 was renamed Booked Up. It became one of the largest single used bookstores in the United States. After struggling over the years with declining sales and a changing industry, the decision was made to sell off the largest share of the inventory and downsize the business. The auction took place on August 10th and 11th, leaving enough stock to continue as a viable brick and mortar retail operation, in addition to their on-line efforts. The auction was very well publicized and brought dealers and other curious folks from around the world to observe and participate. As stated by Mr. McMurtry on the week-end of the sale, "I've never seen that many people lined up in Archer City, and I'm sure I never will again."
