The Sea Around Us
NY, Limited Editions Club, 1980. A limited edition of her second book, first published in 1951. The Sea Around Us was a bestseller that won both the National Book Award and the John Burroughs Medal, as well as serving as the basis for the Oscar-winning documentary of the same name: this title alone would have secured Carson's legacy as a writer and a naturalist, but of course she is now best-remembered for Silent Spring. Illustrated and with photographs by Alfred Eisenstaedt: Copy No. 538 of 2000 copies, signed by Eisenstaedt. With a biographical introduction by Maitland Edey. Fine in a very near fine, lightly marked and edge-sunned slipcase. Not surprisingly, an attractive production. [#036192] SOLD
