About this Item

Book is beautiful beaneath its dustjacket. Handsome green boards are crisp and clean as new with no wear or fading and nicely printed and ornamented in gilt at face and spine. Dustjacket shows a few small abrasions to front, tiny edgetears at crown and tail of spine and darkening to spine area only, but is most handsome in brand new mylar. Has not been price-clipped. Inside pages are lightly toned, but very clean with two small edge tears. Long was a United Church of Christ minister and popular naturalist of the early part of the 20th century. Here he posits that nature is not cruel, popular belief to the contrary, as everything follows what he terms "the natural law of cooperation." Chapters include: They Say Nature Is Cruel, The Struggle For Existence and Other Delusions, Mythical Terrors of the Wild, The Way of a Wolf, Do Animals Suffer Pain, Brute Instincts and Death in the Woods. Nicely enhanced by the eight color plates rendered by Charles Livingston Bull who also created the paste-on at front of dustjacket. 330 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 15900

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
