Elmore Leonard First edition "Get Shorty"  First appearance of Chili Palmer
"Get Shorty" by Elmore Leonard, published in 1990 by Delacorte Press.
Octavo, black paper wrapped boards over white cloth spine, first edition, original publisher's price of $18.95 on the dust jacket flap, 292 pages.
This is a "very good" vintage hardcover book with a solid spine and tight hinges. No writing, no loose, torn or folded pages. The text block is square and closes tightly, a little dusted at the top edge. Upper text block edges show some slight foxing. A group of about 12 pages have slightly crimped upper corner tips, likely from being bumped while being shelved. Lower board corners bumped, uppers are crisp. Board edges show perhaps the slightest hint of sunning to the black paper. White cloth on the spine even.
The original vintage dust jacket is "very good", no tears or writing. Some mild edge wear in places. Spine color is even with the rest of the cover, not sunned. Now encased in a removable archival sleeve for proper protection and presentation.
