Publisher: Government Printing Office, Washington, DC

Publication Date: 1909

Binding: Hardcover

Edition: 1st Edition

Description:

Small 4to. Green cloth with gilt lettering and black decorations. xxxvii, 451pp. Illustration, charts, tables. Very good. Extremely mild edgewear; ownership signature on inner flyleaf. First edition -- tight, clean, most handsome and internally a solid near fine. Complete proceedings of this early conservation conference, with a handsome "From the White House" transmittal slip tipped opposite the title page. Theodore Roosevelt of course led the charge in this "Who's Who" -- among the earliest attempts to "consider measures for the conservation of the country's natural resources." It was supposedly this very conference that introduced the word "conservation" into our everyday language. A superb copy. Bookseller Inventory # 36794
