New York. Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, 1979. Hardcover. Book Club. Winner of the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for biography.

Signed by the author and scarce thus.
Taiwan: Doubleday, 1971. Hardcover. Taiwanese Pirate Edition. A fine book in a near fine dust jacket. Foxing to the top page edges. Sunning to the spine. This is Taiwan pirate edition published at some point after the American first edition was printed. Angle of Repose won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1972. A slightly smaller format than the original Doubleday edition. An interesting item in that it is not recorded in the Colberg bibliography of Stegner.
New York: Doubleday, 1971. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. A fine book in a close to fine dust jacket. Bottom corners lightly bumped.

The book was a notoriously cheap production. But this copy was well made and preserved and has none of the typical spine sag.
