How it works


Grinnell, Geo. Bird. - Clinton Hart Merriam. THE MAMMALS OF THE ADIRONDACK REGION, NORTHEASTERN NEW YORK...NY: Published by the Author at the Press of L. S. Foster, 1884. 1st Edition. Large 8vo, pebbled, olive cloth, 316pp, sides untrimmed. Merrimam's landmark studies published here for the first time in book form as reprints from Vol I and II of the Transactions Linnaeus Society, NY. A Unique presentation copy of one of the major studies of North American natural history from one of the major naturalists of the period to another. Inscribed in black ink at top of fly leaf "Geo. Bird Grinnell, Ph.D./ with the kind regards of/ C. Hart Merriam". Clinton Hart Merriam (1855-1942) was an American zoologist, mammalogist, ornithologist, entomologist, ethnographer, and naturalist, who spent his boyhood near the Adirondacks and as a teenager went West with the Hayden Expedition in 1871 (one result of which was the formation of Yellowstone National Park). Merriam became known as the "father of mammalogy"; this is his watershed work. Grinnell (1849-1938) was anthropologist, historian, naturalist, and writer and became prominent in early conservationist thought. An important association between two major, early contributors to what, decades later, became the American preservationist movement.
