The Tree Where Man Was Born [Inscribed Association Copy]
NY: Dutton. 1972. A nonfiction book about Africa, with text by Matthiessen and photographs by Eliot Porter (whose contribution to the book is given its own, separate title -- The African Experience). Inscribed by Matthiessen to his parents, "with much love" and signed "Pete." An excellent family association copy. This is the correct first edition, in brown cloth, in the first issue dust jacket with both the $17.50 price and the introductory $14.95 price, good until October 25, 1972. After the date mentioned, the first issue jackets were clipped so that only the higher price showed; later jackets were unclipped and only had the higher price. Foxing to endpages and prelims; thus very good in a near fine dust jacket with wear at the corners. First Edition. Hardcover.
