The Snow Leopard
NY, Viking, (1979). Later (sixth) printing of his National Book Award-winning volume, recounting a trip to the Himalayas with naturalist George Schaller in the hopes both of encountering a snow leopard in the wild and of coming to terms with his wife's recent death from cancer. From the author's library. Several underlinings in text (not believed to be Matthiessen's); very good, lacking the dust jacket. [#032047] $40
