Under the Sea Wind by Rachel Carson (1952) hardcover book

Sorry, this item has sold.

Rachel Carson - Under the Sea Wind: A Naturalist's Picture of Ocean Life

New York: Oxford University Press, 1952 (first published in 1941.) Second edition, with corrections. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Black cloth binding with silver pictorial illustration and lettering. 314 pp. Very good condition. Slight wear along edges of covers and textblock. Immaculate interior. Dust jacket is chipped at spine tips and has a bit of rubbing at forecorners and along joints but is still very good with vivid coloration. Under the Sea Wind was Carson's second, and, in my experience, hardest to find, book.
