First Edition. xii, 1 leaf, 235 pp, 2 leaves; 81 figs. Original mustard cloth (usually seen in rust), large 8vo. Near Fine. 'I believe [the] book was the most important work on perception since that of Helmholtz's volume three of Physiological Optics, approximately a century earlier. It was a comprehensive approach to the perception of surfaces, things, and movement through the environment, primarily the outcome of his observations and thoughts about the visual task involved in flying and landing aircraft . The book was clearly intended to initiate a revolutionary movement. I believe that intention has, just as clearly, been successful. Some forty years after its publication, the book is still widely cited and controversial, the direct source of substantial current experimental research, and the starting point for more extreme departures from what had been the established way of thinking about perception' (Julian Hochberg, 'James Jerome Gibson,' National Academy of Sciences Biographical Memoirs 63, 1994, 155-6).
