Field Notes from a Catastrophe
(NY), Bloomsbury, (2006). An early standout in the now ongoing deluge of books on climate change, this book grew out of Kolbert's three-part New Yorker essay on the subject, written at a time when it was still believed that sounding the alarm would lead to action. Inscribed by the author, to an unnamed recipient: "To a low-carbon future. With admiration for all your good work." Fine in a fine dust jacket, which bears the advance praise: "Reading Field Notes from a Catastrophe during the 2005 hurricane season is what it must have been like to read Silent Spring forty years ago." Uncommon signed. [#034720] SOLD
