Saint Paul, Webb Book Publishing Co., 1940. "The Story of Conservation in the United States" by a Professor and an Associate Professor of Forestry at the University of Minnesota, and with a searing foreword by Jay N. Darling, the Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist who founded the National Wildlife Federation in 1937. Inscribed: "To Lyman E. Wakefield/ I worked nearly a year and a half to get this book done, so want you to see it." The initials suggest the inscription is possibly from the publisher, Horace C. Klein, as opposed to one of the authors. Wakefield and Klein were both associated with Carleton College. Edge-stained cloth, very good, lacking the dust jacket. An urgent and timely book in the history of conservation in the U.S. [#034707] $150
