New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1968. First Edition. Signed and inscribed by McPhee on the title page, signed, and dated. First edition, first printing of McPhee's classic non-fiction portrait of the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
Revisited in the New York Times in 2012, over forty years after its original publication, the critic declared it "John McPhee’s ‘Pine Barrens,’ a New Jersey Must-Read," maintaining its importance and sustaining the initial New York Times review from 1968 which stated "It will be a long time before another book appears to equal the literary quality and human compassion of this one."
Scarce inscribed first printing of the author's fourth book. Very good with some browning to edges, in a very good minus dust jacket with some fading and bumping to corners/spine and some browning/foxing to corners. Item #96
