The Rocky Mountains : Third Volume in the American Mountain Series, Atwood, Wallace W.
1 Atwood, Wallace W. The Rocky Mountains : Third Volume in the American Mountain Series
New York Vanguard Press 1945 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
[1945]. Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full beige cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red and black. Octavo. Brown topstain and beige endpapers. 324pps., with numerous photos and illustrations and a fold-out map. There is a modest amount of dustspotting to the cloth, otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound; the pages are unaffected by said spotting. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing and soiling and a small (1/4") tear at the top of the front panel; the original price (3.75) is intact. Nicely SIGNED and inscribed by the noted geologist, geographer, and educator, in his florid script, to the original owner on the title-page. ".This is more than a book. It is a memorable, exciting adventure -- an adventure for the amateur naturalist, for the armchair traveler, and for every lover of our mountain ranges and the great American West. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Dr. Atwood, President of Clark University and the foremost authority on the Rocky Mountains, tells the story of our most magnificent mountain area with its many-hued gorges, its snow-capped peaks, its glaciers, and its awe-inspiring scenery. 'The Rocky Mountains' takes the reader on an exhilarating camping trip -- one which he will not soon forget. During the day, he climbs on horseback through the high mountains, breathing champagne air and learning the incredible story of the origin and growth of the Rockies. In the evening, around the campfire with cowhands and members of the exploring party, he hears tales of the first white settlers, of the free and easy mining days, of the ranchmen who form the backbone of our western people today. As he turns in to warm blankets he will sense the grandeur of the towering rock peaks stabbing the sky around him, reaching toward the stars."

A very nice, collectible copy: scarce signed.

"...When the 20th century lists its achievers, the name of Sir Edmund Hillary will be among them, ranked with the greatest adventurers of this and many other centuries.
Like astronauts who have looked back on their world from space, or walked the surface of the moon, Ed Hillary, after levering himself to the top of the world's highest mountain, was all at once the same and yet never the same again.
It was as if he had glimpsed more than simply the vast snow profiles of the Himalayas but had seen beyond to man's real place on the planet as caretaker in trust.
Through his unfailing support and nurturing of the Sherpa population, building schools and hospitals, repaying not only his own debt but also those of other humans to other communities, he set an example of caring to the world.
Hillary's efforts are more than simply for mankind. Through his worldwide travels in support of environmental causes, he has come to epitomise the modern adventurer who not only travels but defends, who not only saw for himself but who brough the message home to hundreds of millions more.
Forty years after those moments shared by a shy Sherpa and a young beekeeper handpicked by fate to be the trailblazers, the time is right to celebrate a great life. This book is that celebration..."

"...The 'Oregon' was the famed river of the West in men's imagination, but when it was finally seen by white men, in 1792, it was named for the Columbia, first ship to come in over the bar, commanded by Captain Robert Gray. It was not until 1805 that Lewis and Clark's famous expedition reached the river, opening the area to a vast flood of American settlers, which eventually insured that by and large the Columbia would belong to the United States. The river rises in Canada, the British Captain Vancouver came soon after Gray, and among the earliest explorers was David Thompson of the Northwest Company of Montreal. But in the long run, the fur forts of the Nor'westers and the Hudson's Bay Company became less important than the people who came to stay -- to farm, fish or work in timber. West of the Cascade Mountains, the 'Oregon Country' was a paradise of incredibly rich farmland, huge fir forests, endless salmon, and the story of the Columbia is inevitably one of lumbering, canning, steamboats and railroads. Recently, great dams have changed the face of the desert country east of the mountains, and a whole new chapter has been added to the colorful history of this majestic river. But above all it is the story of the people -- big and small -- who faced a new, tremendous country and made it their own."

9 Matthiessen, Peter Wildlife In America
New York Viking 1959 First Edition Hines, Bob 
In Near Fine condition. Green cloth quarterbound in tan buckram. The spine is stamped in green and gilt; the decorative front board in gray. Quarto. 'Totems of The Plains Indians' endpapers (by George Catlin). 304pps., with numerous line drawings plus 8 pages of color plates and 16 pages of monochrome plates. No dustjacket. There is a tidy gift inscription on the ffep and a smudge, small and quite faint, on the fore-edge, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. A very nice copy, sans jacket, of the author's third book.

"...To the large body of literature dealing with the natural life of North America this book is a unique contribution. It is the first comprehensive history of American wildlife, from the time of the white man's arrival in the New World to the present. To fashion this valuable and fascinating chronicle, Peter Matthiessen has studied the accounts of explorers, settlers, and naturalists from the time of the first records. He tells of the great auk and of many other creatures, of how they vanished and where and why, and what is now being done that North America may not become a wasteland of man's creation, in which no wild thing can live.
The book follows the tide of white settlement as it moved from the eastern seaboard in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, across the rivers, plains, and mountains to the Pacific. It tells of the fur trappers and whalers, the market hunters and the spoilers. Never before in a single volume has the story of our continent's original inhabitants been told with such dramatic detail and illustration..."

Exploring the liminal : A Personal Journey Through Southeast Asia, Moore, Tim and Moscowitz, Jan
12 Moore, Tim and Moscowitz, Jan Exploring the liminal : A Personal Journey Through Southeast Asia
North America Stora Enso 2003 Soft Cover 
Fine in a Fine slipcase. Bound in glossy pictorial wrap (pb). 192 glosscoated pages, with numerous full-page, full-color photographs. No dustjacket, as issued. A flawless copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. The slipcase -- is also as new. The slipcase consists of handmade red and metallic gold paper over boards; this paper was created by Tibetan refugees specifically for this project and no two cases are identical. The paper was made from the daphne bush that grows in the Himalayan Mountain region. A very nicely produced item.

"...What is it you have always dreamed of doing but have yet to do? What life-changing challenge is waiting patiently for you to take it up -- to set aside those thousand and one practical arguments for staying on the safe and familiar path? As a husband and wife design partnership, we feel like the luckiest people in the world, to have the opportunity to do something we love, and to love what we do. Yet it was time to take a risk, to create new possibilities in our professional and personal lives. Over a period of three months we drove, flew, cruised and walked across seven countries: Nepal, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Bali, Indonesia. Along with two small travel bags, we took a 35mm camera, sixty rolls of film, three sketchbooks and four journals. We went in search of the 'liminal,' defined as, 'of or relating to a sensory threshold.' What we found was a swirl of new sights, sounds, smells and tastes, where everything was new and nothing could be taken for granted. We were lured by exotic beauty and what we discovered was so much more." -- from the Introduction.

Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Navy blue boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Quarto. Marbled tan endpapers. 174pps., with numerous photographs -- most of them in full-color.

The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the great explorer, 'E. P. Hillary' -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. Includes a Foreword by HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

"...When 33-year-old New Zealand beekeeper Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa climbing partner Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mt. Everest on May 29, 1953, they congratulated each other with a handshake and a hearty embrace. It was the beginning of a lifelong relationship between Hillary and the Sherpa people -- a people whose courage, skill, and generosity of spirit make Himalayan exploration possible. 'Sir Edmund Hillary and the People of Everest' is a story of giving back. The book begins with a vivid recounting of the conquest of Mt. Everest and goes on to beautifully chronicle Hillary's humanitarian and environmental efforts over the last half century.
His work on behalf of the Sherpas includes raising funds, building schools, setting up two hospitals, and opening 12 medical clinics. His deep love, respect, and concern for the Sherpa people is unwavering, and his commitment shines through in whatever project is at hand.
Using personal interviews and intimate photographs, photographer Anne B. Keiser and writer Cynthia Russ Ramsay paint an insightful portrait of an extraordinary man and his unmatched devotion to preserving the culture of the Sherpa people..."

This Travel Club issue is the actual first edition, preceeding the Rinehart trade edition (October, 1946) by three months.

"...From perpetually snow-capped peaks to stifling deserts below sea-level, the Colorado cuts the deepest and truest cross-section through the heart of the continent. From wind-swept rocky wastes high above the timberline, flat-topped mesas, and crinkled desert hills, to the illusive depths of the Grand Canyon where whole mountains contact and expand with the changing shadows, its landscapes are peculiarly American in spirit and character.
For the Colorado flows through time as well as space. At the bottom of its great canyon lies one of the early layers of the earth's crust. The cliff dwellers' civilization, and the rise and fall of our great pueblos were only a brief moment in its history. Later came the Spaniards with sword and Bible. They managed to impose a thin layer of Christianity upon the mystical earth-religion of the Indians, and gave three other names to the Colorado. But it became known simply by its unchanging color -- the red river..."
