Deux Saisons a L'Age de Pierre [Under the Mountain Wall]
(Saint Amand), Gallimard, (1967). The first French edition of his third book of nonfiction, recounting the Harvard-Peabody Expedition to New Guinea to study one of the last "stone age" tribes on the planet, which had been entirely free from contact with Westerners or the artifacts of industrial society. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen. A review copy, with "S P" on the rear cover. Very good in wrappers. [#032062] $80
