This is a beautiful copy of the trade edition that has been SIGNED by John McPhee on the half-title page (not a bookplate). An outstanding collection of eight pieces written by John McPhee between 1981 and 1984. Geographically and thematically, they range from Alaska to New Jersey, describing, for example, the arrival of telephones in a small village near the Artctic Circle and the arrival of wild bears in considerable numbers in New Jersey, swarming in from the Poconos in search of a better life ("Riding the Boom Extension," A Textbook Place for Bears"). Diverse topics abound—ranging from "Heirs of General Practice" to "Open Man" which speaks of a summer day spent in the company of Bill Bradley.
