In very good to fine condition, with some scattered light surface loss to front cover, a few small edge tears, and light handling wear. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which reads, in part: "My name is Faron Hengst, when I was 1 year old in 1960 my parents went to the New Mexico State Fair to see Faron Young, Patsy Cline & George Jones perform…I was named after Faron Young so my parents took me…After the show they took me up to get autographs of all 3 stars. They told Faron Young that they had named me after him because they loved his music so much, my mom told me Patsy Cline held me while Faron & George Jones signed this book."
