Live Water
Far Hills, NJ: Meadow Run Press, 1996. Deluxe edition, signed by author and artist, one of 5 copies for presentation, marked Publisher's Copy (67 copies offered for sale). With two drawings and 12 tipped in color plates reproducing watercolors by John Swan. 1 vols. 8vo. Original beige cloth, blue morocco spine, fore edges uncut, as new, in matching cloth folding box with morocco spine label. Deluxe Edition, Publisher's Copy A superb book, a collection of observations, reflections and experiences by one of the great angling writers of this or any generation. McGuane's diverse pieces on fish and fishing range geographically from his beloved Montana, to the Andes, to the Russian Arctic, and in subject from equipment ("A rod better have a great reason for being over nine feet or under eight. Nine is a wonderful length for a trout, tarpon, and billfish rod. It's a length the human body likes.") to picturesque angling companions and the enduring challenges of the sport. John Swan's watercolors are a worthy enhancement This de luxe edition was sold out upon publication, and it is easy to see why.
