First limited edition published for The First Edition Club. Octavo (23 cm), pp. 348. Full leather with gilt titling, and four raised bands. Moiré endpapers and satin ribbon bookmark. All edges gilt. Includes special introduction to this edition by Matthiessen. (Roberson A22). Reviewers critiqued this double National Book Award-winner (1979 and 1980), for the way Matthiessen folded natural history, personal tragedy and religion into a travel memoir (Roberson, I295-347), but the book proved to be a forerunner in the nature writing genre, combining memoir and the natural world, and a unparalleled classic of narrative nonfiction.
