Deep, reddish-brown cloth with gilt titles on spine and bevelled edges. Light edge and corner wear. Still square and securely bound. Former owner's name and address on ffep. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 231 pages; This was Burroughs' second book, first on nature. This appears to be a first edition except there is nothing, no title or decoration, on the front, as is listed in some descriptions. However, there were variats in the first edition and this may be one. The title page is the same as those pictured with the date 1871, black and red type, a b&w illustration at the top, and a pink and black heraldic device above the publisher's information. The copyright page also states 1871. Very attractive copy of this significant book. I also have a postcard with a note in Burrough's hand and initialed by him that mentions being at Yosemite with John Muir. It is my # 13470.
