About this Item

First state of the first edition, with all points (date to title page, "Bob-pumper" in index, etc.), boldly SIGNED by the author in an early hand. The most influential naturalist guide published in the twentieth century, redefining how information is displayed, arranged, and communicated. In a very good example of the exceedingly rare dustwrapper, one of perhaps ten that have survived. The jacket has seen some light restoration by a professional conservator. A handsome copy of a very important book. Bookseller Inventory # 16121
