SILENT SPRING
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1962. First Edition. Hardcover. Bump to bottom right corner, otherwise Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper with moderate edgewear. This book on the effects of pesticides is a landmark in environmental writing inspiring the movement that led to the banning of DDT and raising awareness of the important connection between humans and their environment which hitherto had been generally taken for granted. This copy is INSCRIBED "To Nell Mae/with best wishes" and SIGNED by the author on the half-title page. Signed copies of this important book, one of the most important of the century by many standards, are rather scarce as, ironically, Carson died of cancer less than two years after its publication.
      [Bookseller: Charles Agvent]
