First Edition. Maclean, Norman. A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT AND OTHER STORIES. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, (1976). "We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen.'' First Edition of Norman Maclean's elegiac autobiographical novella adapted into the Academy Award-winning 1992 Robert Redford directed film. The first issue, first printing with the correct issue points, 'adways' instead of 'always' on pp. 27 and different ISBN numbers on the copyright page and rear dustwrapper flap. 8vo. 217 pp. A fine copy in blue cloth, a hint only of foxing to the bottom edge, silver titles to the spine in a neatly price-clipped fine pictorial dustwrapper. A handsome copy of an American classic. "Maclean's book - acerbic, laconic, deadpan - rings out of a rich American tradition that includes Mark Twain, Kin Hubbard, Richard Bissell, Jean Shepherd, and Nelson Algren. I love its sound." New York Times Book Review.
