St Paul, MN: Thomson/West, 2008.  First edition.

Signed by Scalia as "Nino" and inscribed "with respect and affection" for Henry Abraham.  Nino is the nickname Scalia acquired early in life, partly in remembrance of his grandfather, for whom he was named, and is how he was known to close friends.

The recipient is almost undoubtedly Henry J. Abraham, University of Virginia Law Professor, scholar on the judiciary and constitutional law, and friend to Scalia (as well as Justices Brennan, Powell, and Ginsberg).  In his honor, Professor Abraham's former students and colleagues established the Abraham Distinguished Lecture Series at UVA Law School in 1997.  Scalia was the 2010 Abraham Lecturer.

A fine copy in similarly fine, unclipped dust wrapper.

Association copies with Scalia's signature are uncommon indeed.
