Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 185 pages. Published in 2000. The author's "Tiger" book. One of the most beautiful nature photography books ever published. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Paul Buckley: Regular-sized volume format. Hard boards with black titles embossed on cover and metallic-orange titles embossed on spine, as issued. Text by Peter Matthiessen. Photographs by Maurice Hornocker. How he took the photographs is a tribute to both his eye and his intrepid-ness. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Peter Matthiessen's "Tigers In The Snow". The companion volume to "Snow Leopard". A lament as well as a polemic on behalf of a vanishing species whose eventual extinction Matthiessen sees as nothing less than an indictment of Homo Sapiens. The mindless despoliation of Planet Earth is so complete and in many cases, irreversible, that the only thing left to do is to wait for the end. Matthiessen is a conservationist but he is not a sentimentalist. Like all true lovers of the world we live in, his point is that the destruction of Nature will inevitably lead to the destruction of Man. "A gorgeously, sadly elegiac defense of the Siberian tiger as well as his vanishing relatives in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, and in the case of Iran, vanished. What Matthiessen knows and makes us feel is that the fate of the tiger is a kind of final judgment on whether human beings themselves can actually call themselves civilized" (Newsday). "Matthiessen is our greatest modern Nature writer in the lyrical tradition" (The New York Times). In the near future, we will have only this magnificent book to remind us of this beautiful animal. After a year-long struggle with cancer, Peter Matthiessen died on April 5, 2014 at the age of 86. An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Matthiessen collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the half-title page by Peter Matthiessen. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate, which most copies available are, as the publisher flooded the market with signed bookplates. Matthiessen's signature on this copy is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen: Clean, flowing, and elegant. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
