Descripción

Not a reprint. This is the original 12 journal issues of the The Audubon Magazine covering 1955 & 1956 complete which have been custom bound in blue buckram (hard cover). This book is not exlibrary but the name of noted ornithologist Fred J. Pierce whose name is at the bottom of the spine. We have other issued of The Audubon bound in the same binding. Overall in EXCELLENT condition. Photos available upon request. FRED JOHN PIERCE was born on the family farm near Winthrop, Iowa on 6 July 1902, and passed away at Cedar Rapids, Iowa on 6 May 1992. After reading Ernest Thompson Seton's Two Little Savages at age 13, Fred became a bird and book enthusiast for the rest of his life. He was a charter member of the Iowa Ornithologists Union when it was organized in 1923. In 1931 he began a 30-year tenure as editor of the new journal of the Union, Iowa Bird Life. During his lifetime Fred built Iowa Bird Life into a respected state journal, balancing the interests of both scientist and amateur. He also contributed more than 500 long and short articles and book reviews under his own name. Fred joined the AOU in 1948 and became an Elective Member in 1950. He and his wife Reva founded the Pierce Book Company in 1944. They quickly developed the largest North American catalog business in new and second-hand natural-history books, with two catalogs each year, and a peak circulation of 14,000. Fred's success was due to his vast knowledge of early natural-history books and their value. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 020101
