In 1896, John Bell Hatcher conceived of, planned and secured the greater part of the funding for three expeditions to Patagonia, as well as the idea of publishing the results of the expeditions with funding from J. Pierpont Morgan. The trips were chronicled in the Princeton University Expeditions to Patagonia, 1896-1899. Because of the similarity of the flora and fauna in Patagonia and Australia, he concluded that the two were once connected by land. A little creasing to paper spine and a few spots on the cover. Overall, a clean and tight copy of a large book. EXTRA POSTAGE LIKELY due to size and weight. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
