Carson, Rachel

Silent Spring

  • First edition, first printing of Carson's ecological classic, the book that inaugurated the modern environmental movement. A very attractive copy.
  • Boston & Cambridge: Houghton Mifflin Company & The Riverside Press. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, yellow top-stain, green and grey patterned endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout. Only the tiniest bit of rubbing at the extremities of the cloth. An excellent copy in the jacket that is just a little rubbed with a couple of nicks and short splits and a tape repair to the verso.
