3 Altizer, MichaelThe Last Best Day; 0977855163 / 9780977855162, 
2009 Sporting Classics; Limited Edition #70 of 300
As New Hardcover, No DJ, as Issued
(Synopsis) The Last Best Day is a book about fly-fishing. Not so much about fly-fishing as a sport, but fly-fishing as a way of life, an experience so intricately woven into the fabric of being as to be foundational to other less sublime realities or mere physical existence. It is about a perception which transcends the day-to-day and elevates the essence of living to a higher place. This is not a book about how to fly-fish, but instead about what fly-fishing means and how it feels and where in can lead, both in body and in spirit. These stories come from the creeks and rivers of the Appalachians, to the high country and desert streams of the American Southwest, to the great salmon, rainbow, and grayling waters of Alaska. The Last Best Day also features more than 40 drypoint etchings by renowned sporting artist Brett Smith., C1957.

Collectively they lead from the creeks and rivers of the Appalachians, to the high country and deserts streams of the American Southwest, to the great salmon, rainbow and grayling waters of Alaska, and then back to the little brook trout stream where the snow monster lives. They take you to places you may never have dared venture - and in the end they take you home. But wherever they take you, you will remember the journey., AB00973.

1999 The Lyons Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Very Good 8vo Hardcover, in Very Good+ DJ
(Description) Slight bumps to corners, else a near-new copy of this book. Signed by the Author and Nick Lyons, the Publisher. *** (Synopsis) Jim Babb is one of the most eccentric and riveting new voices to appear in the world of fly fishing in many years. From his early days growing up in a small eastern Tennessee town to his migration through Brahmin Boston to the backwoods of Maine (where he built his own house, by hand), Babb's story is as unique as it is brilliantly told. He explores his first fly rods in Blue Collar Cane; his early use of the wet fly; and the expeditions he made for bream. Always, he fly fishes with a maverick genius, building a way of seeing and experiencing the world of fly fishing that is all his own, and that carries him from the ponds of Maine to great fly-fishing opportunities throughout the world as editor of Gray's Sporting Journal. What rings on every page of this book, writes Ted Lesson, is a tremendously energetic, expressive, and robust voice... It is distinctive and original, an authentic voice, pure homegrown. And the story that voice tells is always connected to fly fishing-in waters near and far, always memorable., AB00478.

2001 The Lyons Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Description) Very minor bump at top of spine. Signed by both Babb and Nick Lyons, the Publisher!! *** (Synopsis) James Babb is one of the funniest essayists at work today, and each of the ribald tales in RlVER MUSIC is imbued with his devastating wit, ornery perspective, and musical language. As he writes in the Prelude, his newest opus is about the occasional laugh, the occasional thought, a bit about fly fishing and a bit about Life, and all of it underpinned by the music of rivers. The pieces are arranged by season, as are our lives, and touch on the music that rivers make.He recounts a disastrous - and hilarious - spring canoeing trip with a friend in The Darling Buds of May, where the snow accumulated so quickly on their hats that they looked like Conehead voyageurs from Rem-ulak. In The Coriolis Effect, Babb rhapsodizes about the sights, smells, and culture of what he considers to be the last great place on Earth, where pristine Chilean waters and native way of life relieve him of an obsession about which direction the water flushes. And in Little Jewels, he weaves an exquisite, deeply humorous, and haunting nocturne with peccadillo accompaniment that considers the mating habits of trout and men, mortality, and a thirty-nine-year-long unrequited love., AB00440.
