Madison, Wisconsin: Tamarack Press, . 30.5x22.5 cm (large octavo), pp. i-vii [viii] ix [2-3] 4-152 (mis-paged by the publisher), illustrations, including 64 color photographs by Tom Algire, original gray cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First printing of this edition. A selection of Leopold's articles, essays and reflections, put together by his son Luna Leopold shortly after Aldo's death, and published posthumously in 1949. In a 1990 poll of the membership by the American Nature Study Society A SAND COUNTRY ALMANAC and Rachel Carson's SILENT SPRING were acknowledged to be the two most significant environmental books of the twentieth century. Now recognized as a classic piece of outdoor literature, the book, along with Thoreau's WALDEN and SILENT SPRING, is one of the intellectual underpinnings of the modern ecological movement in America. This edition has an introduction by Hal Borland and a fine illustrated afterword by Nina Leopold Bradley. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket with mild wear, rubbing at edges and soil mark on front panel. (#166867).
