New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1892. Joseph Le Conte (1823-1901) was a physician and scientist who was a co-founder of the Sierra Club (with John Muir). Resident and working in the South during the Civil War, he harbored racist views of Reconstruction; Quercus finds this ironic, considering his later academic career and fame at UC Berkeley. First published in 1888; this is a Very Good copy of the Second Edition, containing Le Conte's revisions of the previous version. Olive green cloth binding, tanned to a brown shade on the spine, which has gilt lettering. Clean text; 392 pages, with 12 pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. Mildly bumped, and with some wear visible at the margins of the spine. A solid copy. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Second Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket.

Price = 50.00 USD
