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

NY, Random House, 1998. An advance copy in the form of a bound photocopied typescript. 467 pages, double-spaced and double-sided, with the title header "Orno & Marshall" and the date header "11/4/97," and significant textual variations between this and the published text. Sent by a Random House editor to Peter Matthiessen, hoping for a publicity comment. An additional handwritten letter is laid in, from John [Sterling?] to Matthiessen's wife, expressing happiness that the Matthiessens will be coming to Sun Valley [likely the Writers Conference]: "It will be a social zoo, of course, but we will have one another (and Mark Salzman's humor) as comfort." Tapebound, with an acetate cover; near fine. An early -- and at this point possibly unique -- version of the second novel by Canin, with distinguished provenance. [#032272] $250
