EARLE, Sylvia A.
Sea Change: A Message of the Oceans
NY, Putnam's, (1995). Signed by the author on the title page and additionally inscribed by Earle on the half title in 1997: "For Valerie and Dan -/ - Kindred spirits -/ With admiration for what you are doing to take care of the ocean -/ Warm regards -/ Sylvia." Modest foxing to the edges of the text block, thus near fine in a very near fine dust jacket, with blurbs by Jane Goodall and E.O. Wilson, among others. Earle, explorer and oceanographer (with a Ph.D. in algae), was the first female President of NOAA, set a record for untethered walking on the ocean floor, led an all-female team to live underwater for two weeks, has logged 7,000+ hours underwater, and is the founder of the nonprofit Mission Blue, among many other accomplishments. A nice inscription, and an uncommon book signed. [#033872] SOLD
