1931 - Snow Crystals - Wilson A. Bentley - scarce 1st in rare original jacket
Mcragw-Hill, 1931. Snow Crystals by Wilson A. Bentley and W.J. Humphreys Publisher: McGraw-Hill Book Company, NY, 1931 with First Edition on the title page Wilson Bentley developed a remarkable micro-photographic process for capturing and photographing actual crystals of snow. McGraw-Hill published a catalog of these photographs along with the technique described by Bentley. True first editions of 'Snow Crystals' are somewhat difficult to find. To find a 1st in the original dust jacket is near impossible as the dj is so rare some collectors were unaware it was even issued. Presented here is the true first in the blue binding along with the original dust jacket that remains unclipped with the original price of $10.00 at the top of the front flap which, in 1931, made this an expensive item as $10 in 1931 would be approximately $170 today. Condition: Dust Jacket: see photo, is in protective mylar cover Book: square with sound binding showing basically no wear Internally: white and bright throughout, only occasional mild foxing, no tears, no dog ears, no inscription Shipping: shipping is gratis - Note: book will be sent via registered mail which will require a signature upon delivery Payment - please use Pay Pal for payment Thank you for looking.
