A River Runs Through It - Maclean, Norman - 1976. 
University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1976 True First Printing, one of about 5000 copies (though claims often are made the first run numbered as few as 1577 copies), with all first-issue points present: no printing history line on copyright page; disagreement between ISBN codes on copyright page and on the rear dust jacket flap (the latter is correct) and "adways" (for "always") on p. 27. 8vo: xiv,217,pp. Publisher's sky-blue cloth, spine lettered in silver, mustard end papers; in matching blue dust jacket, priced $7.95, with woodcut vignette on front and author's photo on back panel. Very good in a very good dust jacket, with previous owner's 1976 gift message on the front free endpaper. A collector's copy of the author's masterpiece (and first book). "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.'' Maclean's elegiac meditation on the intricacies of fly fishing, logging, fighting forest fires, playing cribbage and being a husband and father. Two novellas and a short story, the first of which was adapted to film by Robert Redford, with Tom Skerritt, Craig Sheffer, and Brad Pitt.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.
