The Everglades
New York: Rinehart & Co., (1947). First Edition. Near fine in green cloth covered boards with a gilt on dark green title block on the spine with very light wear and rubbing to the cloth at the head of the spine. The hinges, joints and binding are all tight, strong and clean. In a very near fine, unclipped dust jacket with one tiny chip of 1/16" at the lower edge of the spine area along with light wear and rubbing to the same. There is a prior owner's address label on the front paste down. Signed and very warmly inscribed by the author and dated in the year of publication on the fly title page. This copy is accompanied with a post card dated "3 December, 1947" addressed, signed and inscribed by the author. The post card points out the corrections to the text she makes in her own hand. The 33rd volume in the Rivers of America series with illustrations by Robert Fink. Although part of the Rivers of American series this is one of the most important titles in Florida's environmental heritage. 406 pages including an index. Note: this copy contains the two typographical errors on pages 26 and and 346 which have been corrected by the author in her own hand. This is typical as the author vowed in an article discussing the upcoming publication of her book that she would make these corrections on each and every copy presented to her for signature. Carol Fitzgerald in her outstanding bibliography of The Rivers of America series states that there were 7,500 copies of the first edition printed and sold. (Fitzgerald, p169)
