Books by Vardis Fisher in the Special Collections Department
 

Special Collections holds at least one edition of every book written or edited by Idaho author Vardis Fisher. Most of the books were acquired by donation and represent the collecting efforts of Mabel Clore, James P. Gossett, and Lloyd Jensen.  The library acquired its single copy of  The Caxton Printers In Idaho (1944) by purchase from Rosalie Sorrels in 1995.  The dates in the left column represent, as well as can be determined, the publication date of the edition described. When enclosed in parentheses, publication dates were derived from sources other than the book itself (chiefly George Kellogg's bibliography in Western American Literature, 1970). The identification of first editions is sometimes difficult. If the book is explicity labelled as a first edition, it is so noted in this list. The words (First edition) in parentheses indicate volumes which, in the judgment of the department, appear to be first editons, based on knowledge of the particular publishers' printing practices. The names (Clore), (Gossett), and (Jensen) indicate with which collection the particular volume was received; those books not so marked were purchased by the library at other times.
