A River Runs Through It and Other Stories [Signed]

Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1976. Second printing, as designated by number line and corrected ISBN on copyright page (but with the uncorrected misprinting of "always" as "adways" still present on p. 27). In a first state dust jacket (distinguished as such by the lack of "2d printing" statement at base of front flap).

Octavo. Xiv, 217pp. Blue cloth boards, silver spine titles; dust jacket. A few tiny spots of soiling to textblock top, minor bumping to spine ends. Near fine in a very good (+), unclipped ("$7.95") jacket showing toning to spine, light edgewear and rubbing, and a former price inked at top corner of front panel. Signed, dated, and inscribed by MacLean to ffep.

Inscribed second printing (in first state jacket) of Maclean's collection of semi-autobiographical short fiction, a now-classic of Western literature and fly fishing, whose title novella formed the basis for the 1992 Robert Redford-directed film of the same name. Maclean's full inscription reads: "University of Chicago, April 15, 1979. To Bobby: With deep affection and best wishes. Norman." Although we can only guess at the identity of the inscribee—perhaps a former colleague at the University of Chicago, or a friend at the university's press—Maclean's warm inscription and use of first name only suggests that the two were quite close.
