About this Item: The University of Chicago, Chicago, 1976. First edition, first printing one of only 1,577 copies of the Maclean's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Norman Maclean on the front free endpaper. Fine in a fine dust jacket without the usual sunning to the spine with a touch of rubbing. A superior 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.
