BURTON, John F.
Birds and Climate Change
London, Helm, 1995. A relatively early book on climate change, tracing the effects via the planet's changing distribution of bird species. The book is so early, in fact, that the enclosed autograph letter signed by Burton expresses that only a delay in the book's publication "enabled me to take proper account of the most recent influences, especially the anthropogenic greenhouse effect." The book is inscribed to (and the enclosed letter is written to) Wendy Dickson on publication day. Dickson, a former colleague at the BBC Natural History Unit, typed the first draft for Burton and is thanked in the printed acknowledgments as well as in the inscription and the letter. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#034995] SOLD
