The Wind Birds
NY, Viking, (1973). Small quarto, reprinting the text of Matthiessen's classic Shorebirds of North America, with a new set of illustrations and a smaller format than that book. Inscribed by the author to his parents, "with much love," on Fishers Island -- one of his childhood homes -- in the year of publication. Page edges and prelims foxed, a very good copy in a good, dampstained dust jacket with one small chip to the upper rear edge. [#032382] $850
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
