About this Item

"The inventory of the modern field guide," an American ornithologist and artist whose seminal "Field Guide to Birds" (1934) revolutionized field guides and went through many editions. Signed Commemorative Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled at Jamestown, New York on October 28, 1978. Near fine. Single 15-cent "Wildlife Conservation" stamp at upper right. A special commemorative cancel accomplished for some reason AFTER Peterson's August 28 birthdate and 70th birthday (1908), reading "Jamestown, New York / Birthplace of / Roger Tory Peterson." No decorative cachet at left; no distracting recipient's name/address -- but Peterson signs bold and large in his usual red marker across the "sweet spot." Quite attractive. With original transmittal envelope. Bookseller Inventory # 24490
