Book Description D. Appleton & Co., New York, 1895. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Two volumes, bound in dull green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. Top edges gilt. 208 and 231 pages. Half-title page of volume I is lightly soiled, otherwise the contents of both are fine, with this exception (and these cannot truly be considered "faults," more like "additions") : In volume I, a folded sheet of note paper, illustrated with an engraving of White's house, is attached to the front blank. On the inner page there is an ink note, "This sheet of note paper was purchased in Selborne by A. C. in August 1905 at the little country store and post office kept by a most genial man, a Mr. Legg. He was a native of Selborne & much more like a Yankee in speech & American than like an Englishman. He was a well posted man & much interested in White and his work." Also, on the reverse of the half-title page is an actual 4½ by 6 inch photograph, uncaptioned, but it is apparently a church, and my guess would be Selborne church. On page xxiii, there is a "shadow" where a leaf had been laid in, and the ink note, "Ivy leaf from Gilbert White's grave picked by A. C. Sunday, August 6, 1905. On the reverse of that is a leaf pasted on, very fragile, with the note "Beech Leaf from the Heart of the Hangar. Picked by A. C. Sunday, August 6, 1905." I almost forgot to mention that the ink name Allen Chamberlain is written on the very top of the title page, he doubtless being the leaf picker, "A. C." Both volumes have slightly darkened spines, a very faint trace of wear, and are clean and tight. Bookseller Inventory # 005165
