Holiday, July 1958
(Philadelphia), (Curtis Publishing), 1958. An issue of the magazine devoted to "the beauty and wonders of natural America," and including "Our Ever-Changing Shore" by Rachel Carson, as well as contributions by Wright Morris, A.B. Guthrie, Jr., Carl Carmer, and Arthur C. Clarke, among others. Carson's article, written at the request of the magazine, came at a time when her attention had turned from writing about the sea to researching the use of pesticides for Silent Spring, but she took this opportunity to make her plea for the preservation of the nation's seashores. An oversized magazine, just shy of 11" x 14", with tiny tears to the spine and a small chip at the front lower corner. A very good copy. [#035022] $125
