THE THEORY & PRACTICE OF RIVERS. Jim Harrison, Russel Chatham. THE THEORY & PRACTICE OF RIVERS.
Seattle: Winn Books, 1986. First edition. Number 38 of a stated 350 copies, SIGNED BY HARRISON and the illustrator, RUSSELL CHATHAM. Together with a suite of FIVE 14 x 18" PRINTS SIGNED BY CHATHAM, each marked AP and numbered "31/40," and a colophon indicating the suite was produced specifically to accompany 175 copies of the book. Supposedly 175 of the 350 copies of the book were signed by both Harrison and Chatham and came with the suite of prints by Chatham, and the other 175 were signed only by Harrison and did not include the prints. As so few of the purported 175 suite of prints have shown up on the market, we wonder if there were more than 40 copies of the "proof" and if those are what sometimes appear. (The publisher has indicated in a letter to us that none of the copies were numbered. Yet, this copy is numbered and there are others recorded as such.) The book is near fine and the slipcase is lightly soiled with a few small smudges, and a faint half-moon shadow, presumably a partial glass ring, but still very good or better. The prints and accompanying colophon are fine.
