Desert, Marsh and Mountain: The World of a Nomad (Signed First)
Collins 1979 - First edition, first impression, signed to the title page by Wilfred Thesiger. Loosely laid-in are three contemporary clippings, all of which have also been signed by Thesiger: two reviews and a lengthy Observer Magazine feature. 4to, lavishly illustrated with the author’s superb b&w photos. Near Fine+: tight and square binding in sharp brown cloth; bright gilt; minor abrasion to the top corner of the upper board; some toning and a few faint spots to the top-edge of the page block; internally very bright, crisp and clean. The unclipped dustwrapper is Fine: very crisp and clean with tiny rubs to a couple of corners; presented in a removable, archival-quality Brodart protective cover. A superb copy with the distinction of the author’s signature (four times, in all!) and scarce, thus. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. Heavy, but extra postage will not be sought for shipping within the United Kingdom (overseas shipping will be at cost). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
