Joseph Wood Krutch - The Forgotten Peninsula: A Naturalist in Baja California

New York: William Sloane Associates, 1961. Hardcover. 8vo. 277pp. Illustrated with photographs and map. Blue boards with silver lettering. Red stamp to the upper edge of the front endpaper. Toning to pastedowns, endpapers, text-block edge, and an outer dust jacket. This book was so hot.... it (possibly) caught fire. Seriously...I can't really explain the staining/toning otherwise. The book is still handsome and very much readable. We feel the singed appearance makes it more mysterious and intriguing. The dust jacket is not price clipped (shows the original price of $3.50). Some edgewear with chipping/tearing to the perimeter.
