Octavo (20 cm), pp. 892. Signed by author on half title page. Gray boards with gilt titling, pictorial jacket. Jacket and boards are slightly bumped at tail of spine. Reviews laid in from The New York Times and the New York Review of Books. Matthiessen's re-working of his Watson trilogy won the 2008 National Book Award for fiction, making him the only author to win in both fiction and nonfiction categories (for his 1978 book, The Snow Leopard). Matthiessen spent years on this project toward the end of his life, to the consternation of friends like the late novelist and poet Jim Harrison, who quipped, "I don't know why you're spending so much time on this Peter, you already wrote it once." Dust jacket present. First Edition.
