A River Runs Through It.

Moser, Barry (illus.)

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1976. First edition, third printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by Maclean on front endpaper to Robert Williams, whose essay on the making of this book accompanies this copy. For its vision of the West and of the unknowns of love and family, A River Runs Through It has won acclaim in both its original novella form and its film adaptation directed and produced by Robert Redford, despite the difficulties Maclean encountered in finding a publisher for his manuscript. The book was intentionally under-advertised, which, of course, had the opposite effect on its public renown. Williams's essay on the making of the book, which is signed by him, describes the translation of Maclean's story into reality and is appended with copied samples from the design process. John N. Maclean's short essay, titled "The Little Blue Book," hints at his father's voice in the design process, from the illustrations to the cover design, and reminds the reader of the cultic reception of the book at its first appearance. Jacket spine slightly toned, else a fine copy in a fine dustwrapper. Item #31368

Price: $2,500.00
