Report on a Game Survey of the North Central States

Madison, Wisconsin: Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute. 1931. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Author's first book. Bound in publisher's original black and green cloth with spine lettered in gilt. 9 7/8 inches tall, 299 pages. Wear through the cloth at the spine and extremities. A few dime size gouges out of the upper rear cover. The text bloc is sound and tight. This copy has a presentation signed and dated by Aldo Leopold during the year of publication when Leopold was 44 years old. This is a remarkabley rare autograph that you may never see offered for sale in the future. Leopold's most famous book, A Sand County Almanac, was published in 1949, a year after he died helping a neighbor fight a wildfire. Thus, NO copies of that famous book can be found signed by the author. Leopold's importance as one of the founders of the science of wildlife management and the wilderness movement in America cannot be over estimated. Very good condition. Item #9026692
