click for a larger image of item #35677, The Biology of People San Francisco, W.H. Freeman, (1978). Later printing of a textbook on the human species, from evolution, to anatomy, to gene theory: this was a gift by Lopez to his stepfather. Inscribed by Lopez on a card that has been taped to the front pastedown: "Dear Dad, to wish you a very good 77th. Our love/ Barry & Sandy." By our calculations, this would have been 1983, when Lopez would have been starting work on Arctic Dreams. Boards bowed; a very good copy, without dust jacket, as issued. [#035677] $200

click for a larger image of item #35676, "Nature Writing" in Nature Writing: A Catalog Hadley, Ken Lopez Bookseller, 2000. In a 4-page introduction to a catalog of nature writing, Lopez takes the measure of the field to argue that it is "that strain of American literature that, more than others now, is pursuing the ancient discourse on human fate," and that "like any worthy literature it should continue to undermine complacency, resist definition, and induce hope." An interesting essay, on a subject close to the writer's heart, and not reprinted elsewhere that we're aware of. Fine in wrappers. [#035676] $45
