Book Description: San Francisco, CA: Chronicle Books, 1990. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 260 pages. Published in 1990. The artist/photographer's book-length account on subject. One of the greatest documentary photography books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in this New And Revised Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run in both Hardcover and Softcover Editions. The Revised Edition is now very scarce. Presents, in a beautifully produced volume, Peter Beard's sequel to his masterpiece, "The End of The Game" (1965). As their poetic title suggests, Peter Beard and Alistair Graham recount their intrepid, often "intimate" (their word), and often near-fatal encounters with the man-eating crocodile, particularly those who lie in wait in Kenya's Lake Rudolf. The self-portrait of Peter Beard writing on the ground while most of his body is seemingly swallowed up by a crocodile is world-famous, one of those few iconic photographs that people who do not particularly care about photography have seen, know, and can now photo-shop. Beard's documentary work on the irreversible devastation of the African continent was pioneering and ground-breaking. He was fortunate enough to see, as a young man of 21, the Africa that no longer exists today, an extinction that he prophesied more than fifty years ago. Beard's African romance began in America, when he first read and fell under the spell of Isak Dinesen's "Out of Africa" (1938), one of the greatest books of the 20th century, and it is impossible to think of his work without Dinesen's literary masterpiece in mind. When NASA, in its quixotic (but deeply moving) quest to reach out to other possible beings in the universe, was asked by the United States Government to send just one book to join the other earthly artifacts of "The Voyager", the time capsule flown infinitely into outer space, they chose Peter Beard's "The End of The Game". When he had to choose between marrying Princess Lee Radziwill, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' glamorous sister, and Africa, Peter Beard chose Africa. "The best book on crocodiles ever published" (The Chicago Tribune). An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Beard collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in blue pen across the title page by the artist/photographer: "Salaams, Peter Beard". There is no recipient named. Beard also stamped the page with his left handprint in matching blue color. Peter Beard often signs with either his thumb, hand, or footprint (or all three). He has said that they are the oldest human signatures, and in his case, a gesture of his African-ness. Signed copies available online command thousands of dollars. This is a reasonable and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 200 plates. Peter Beard's "The End of The Game" is widely regarded as one of the greatest books of the 20th century. One of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PETER BEARD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0877015392. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 17842
