The Outermost House
NY, Armed Services Edition, [1945]. First thus: the Armed Services Edition of Beston's 1928 classic, which became a beacon for the environmental movement, advocating a reorientation of the relationship between man and nature; its argument for the value of the natural world, in its own right, helped provide the basis for the creation of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The text is printed in its entirety, without the illustrations by William Bradford, but with a 1943 introduction by Beston. Small owner name to title page; modest rubbing to covers; very good in wrappers. [#034897] SOLD
