NY: Henry Holt. (2008). Two items: first, the first edition, a paperback original, of this collection of essays by the author of The End of Nature, among others. With a new introduction by the author. Signed by McKibben. And second: the uncorrected proof copy, dated 2007, and including six essays that were not included in the finished book. An announcement of the expected change in contents is affixed to the front cover, as is a label announcing a 2008 publication date. In addition to the presence of these six essays, the proof differs from the published text at least by small changes in the titles of a few of the essays. McKibben's The End of Nature, published in 1989, was the first book for general audiences on the science of global warming and climate change. McKibben has since become one of the most outspoken and visible activists against climate change, founding the organization 350.org, which is now active in nearly 200 countries. The proof copy of this collection is fine in wrappers; the book has a small owner name and date on the flyleaf; otherwise it is also fine in wrappers. An uncommon proof, and also a book that is uncommon signed. First Edition. Softcover. (Inventory #: 032890)
