Legends of the Fall
(NY), Delacorte, [1979]. The uncorrected proof copy of this collection of the three novellas Legends of the Fall, Revenge, and The Man Who Gave Up His Name. The title novella is the basis for the well-received film. This is the second issue proof in red wrappers; there were reportedly about ten copies of the first issue proof, in tape-bound white wrappers. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen. Spine-sunned; near fine in wrappers. A scarce proof, even as the second issue. [#032284] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
