Picturing miracles of plant and animal life by Arthur C. Pillsbury with 66 illustrations. Philadelphia, London: J. B. Lippincott Company, . 26x14 cm, pp. [1-8] 9-13 [14-16] 17-236 [237-240: blank, illustrations, original black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange, top edge stained orange, fore-edge untrimmed, bottom edge rough trimmed. First edition. Pillsbury's early experiments with lapse-time photography were conducted in Yosemite National Park where he was instrumental in achieving the termination of the mowing of Yosemite meadows and the destruction of the park flora -- which became national park-wide policy. Small private owner's name stamped on front paste-down. Some abrasion (insect damage?) to cloth along the fore and bottom edges, a very good copy. (#166330).
