New York: Charles Scribner's sons, 1925. Hardcover. Very Good. Later printing (first published 1908). pp xix, 366, xtensively illustrated with photographs (some colored), 2 maps. Publisher's red cloth boards show moderate wear (bumping/rubbing to edges, light soiling). Paper over rear hinge split, but hinges still sound, text and endpaper unmarked. tight and square, text unmarked. Account of a botanical/zoological expedition and hunting trip to little-known parts of southern Arizona and the Pinacate region of northern Mexico. Described by Joseph Wilder, editor of the Journal of the Southwest, as "a great evocation of a real goddamned expedition, quite unlike the pantywaist excursions nowadays indulged in, all freeze-dried, lightweight, and sensitive to the land. This is manly stuff, natural history the way it used to be done: with a wagon train of provisions, stalking and killing the great desert beasts of the Papagueria, all for science.
