Description:

This American geographer and explorer took part in important expeditions to the Euphrates River (1901), Russian Turkestan (1903-04) and Chinese Turkestan (1905-06), and authored many books such as "Civilization and Climate" (1915), "Earth and Sun" (1923) and "Mainsprings of Civilization" (1945). TLS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New Haven, CT, 1935 April 15. Addressed to S.C. Gilfillan.Very good. Light age toning. Friendly letter on Yale University letterhead about many subjects, including (of all things) "the decline of the patent system. I have been impressed by the way in which recent inventions so largely take the form of individual adjustments by which old ideas are fitted to the needs of a particular factory or a particular product." Continues: "My book on Civilization progresses so slowly. I am sending you a copy of After Three Centuries, which includes the beginning of my study of names." Interesting. Bookseller Inventory #
