A River Runs Through It and Other Stories.

"All good things-trout as well as eternal salvation-come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy": First Edition of A River Runs Through It; Signed by Norman Maclean

A River Runs Through It and Other Stories.

MACLEAN, Norman.

Item Number: 93740

Chicago: The University of Chicago, 1976.

First edition, first printing; one of only 1,577 copies of Maclean’s first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Norman Maclean on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. With all first printing issue points; a digit missing to the ISBN on the copyright page, “adways” for “always” on line 15, p. 27, and the ISBN complete on the dust jacket rear flap. A nice example.

"[Maclean] would go to his grave secure in the knowledge that anyone who'd fished with a fly in the Rockies and read his novella on the how and why of it believed it to be the best such manual on the art ever written--a remarkable feat for a piece of prose that also stands as a masterwork in the art of tragic writing" (Philip Connors, The Nation). Adapted to the immensely successful film, directed by Robert Redford, starring Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer and Tom Skerritt. It went on to win an Academy Award for Best Cinematography.
