First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed pre-publication by the author to Stuart Wright on the title page: “To Stuart Wright, from James Dickey, 20th March, 1970.” Stuart Wright was a publisher and an avid collector of literature from the American South. His important collection, which includes a James Dickey archive, is now kept at the East Carolina University. Deliverance is widely considered as Dickey’s best novel and was adapted into the 1972 film of the same title starring Jon Voight and Burt Reynolds, in which Dickey had a small part as the sheriff.

Octavo. Original beige cloth, titles to spine and front board in green, top edge green, green endpapers. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled, endpapers faintly faded at edges. An excellent copy in a lightly rubbed jacket with one tiny closed tear.
