Mountain Monarchs Wild Sheep and Goats of the Himalaya
Chicago, University of Chicago Press, (1977). Inscribed by the author to Peter Matthiessen, "with fond memories of a wonderful journey." Matthiessen is mentioned in the Acknowledgments as "a stimulating companion during our journey to northern Nepal to study bharal" presumably the journey referenced in the inscription. With Matthiessen's notations (mostly underlinings) in the opening chapters on the Himalayan Region, and later in the section on the snow leopard. Matthiessen's National Book Award-winning book, The Snow Leopard, recounted this trip as well, with Schaller as his companion. Slight mustiness, from living near the ocean. Boards bowed, with a ripple to the front cloth; very good in a very good dust jacket. [#031750] SOLD
