Animals of Southeast Asia
NY, St. Martin's, (1970). A review copy of this book for young people on the animals of Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand and Malaysia. With an autograph note signed by Ayer taped to the front flyleaf, asking if the recipient had received a copy of the book. Also taped there is a review slip; a press release is laid in. Underlinings in text, presumably by the reviewer, along with two small pages of notes laid in. Musty; else near fine in a near fine dust jacket. An oddly timed book on the animals of the region, from a time when the U.S. was actively bombing North Vietnam and Laos, had invaded Cambodia 10 days prior to publication, and was conducting a full-scale war against South Vietnamese insurgents and the North Vietnam Army inside South Vietnam.
