This 328 page stunner of a 1st edition Stated, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The unbumped binding is blue cloth over boards with orange and silver lettering and design on the front and the spine,no tears or bent pages nor any writing. And this baby is rock solid, tight and clean AAA all the way. The unclipped pictorial jacket is also AAA save for the nearly undetectable edgewear. But not to worry or be sad, for said imperfection is made barely noticeably, since, on the very positive side of things, the jacket is now and forevermore protected from any future ambient abuse and resulting degradation by professionally fitted and applied yet instantly removable Brodart mylar. With all his thermonuclear megatons, man has come nowhere near to rivaling nature in its destructive power or in the variety of its methods.The authors explore rampaging nature in every aspect and give us celebrated examples in legend and literature as well as in history. They also give some simple rules for survival. A chapter on Diseasters and Human Behavior brings an absorbing book to a stunning conclusion. Jacket photo by Lynn Pelham from Rapho Guillumette shows part of a 32-mile-wide eye of a hurricane. The Chapters are: Man and the Elements; Winds; Hurricanes; Tornadoes; Deserts; Dust; Rain; Hail; Lightning; Snow; Floods; Waves; Earthquakes; Landslides; Volcanoes; Meteors; and Disaster and Human Behavior; followed by a bibliography and an index. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED.
