IPS, 8" X 10", n.p., n.d. [ca. early 1960s]. Very good. Faint tape stain at each corner. Handsome head-and-shoulders portrait of the young star in his best-known role, clad in buckskin and kepi and clutching his rifle. Centered near the bottom, he boldly inscribes and signs in vibrant green fountain pen: "To Donald Burnell / Best wishes / Nick Adams / THE REBEL." (These last two line are preprinted in greytone on the photograph itself, but Adams neatly traces over them.) Adams' sudden death at age 36 makes inscribed photographs rather scarce.
