In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Peter Matthiessen's "Tigers In The Snow". The companion volume to Peter Matthiessen's "Snow Leopard", a lament as well as a polemic on behalf of a vanishing species whose eventual extinction Matthiessen sees as nothing less than an indictment of Homo Sapiens. The mindless despoliation of Planet Earth is so complete and in many cases, irreversible, that the only thing left to do is to wait for the end. Matthiessen is a conservationist but he is not a sentimentalist. Like all true lovers of the world we live in, his point is that the destruction of Nature will inevitably lead to the destruction of Man. "A gorgeously, sadly elegiac defense of the Siberian tiger as well as his vanishing relatives in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, and in the case of Iran, vanished. What Matthiessen knows and makes us feel is that the fate of the tiger is a kind of final judgment on whether human beings themselves can actually call themselves civilized" (Newsday). "Matthiessen is our greatest modern Nature writer in the lyrical tradition" (The New York Times). In the near future, we will have only this magnificent book to remind us of this beautiful animal. After a year-long struggle with cancer, Peter Matthiessen died on April 5, 2014 at the age of 86. An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Matthiessen collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by Peter Matthiessen. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate, which most copies available are, as the publisher flooded the market with signed bookplates. Matthiessen's signature on this copy is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen: Clean, flowing, and elegant. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with color photographs. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PETER MATTHIESSEN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

Tigers in the Snow - used book

1995

ISBN: 0865475768

ID: 2911151

Indigenous to Asia, and once widely distributed across the continent, the tiger is yet another of the world's creatures to come perilously close to extinction in the last century. Where a hundred years ago the population of Panthera tigris and its cousins stood at more than 100,000, a 1995 census put the total at less than 5,000. And, writes Peter Matthiessen, a longtime student and champion of endangered wildlife, "most biologists and conservationists ... would set that number even lower." Working with the noted wildlife biologist and photographer Maurice Hornocker, Matthiessen recounts his travels into the Russian Far East and Manchuria in search of one of the rarest of the big cats, Panthera tigris altaica, the Siberian tiger. Once shielded, and not by design, by Communist policies that restricted travel in and development of its wilderness habitat, the Siberian tiger is increasingly threatened throughout much of its range as the dense old-growth forests of the Pacific seaboard fall to Japanese logging companies; at the same time, the tiger is still hunted for parts used by Chinese apothecaries (drinking the essence of a tiger is thought to bring renewed sexual vigor to aging men). Matthiessen, whose text brims with a righteous rage on the tiger's behalf, is able to report a few success stories, as Russian, Chinese, and American biologists work to conserve habitat in the wild country memorialized by V.K. Arseniev's Dersu the Trapper, a memoir that i animals,arts music and photography,biological sciences,collections catalogues and exhibitions,conservation,fauna,mammals,nature,nature and ecology,photography Photography, North Point Press

Tigers in the Snow - hardcover

ID: 14094585154

[EAN: 9780865475762], [PU: North Point Press], Nature|Animals, Nature|Environmental Conservation & Protection, Nature|Wildlife, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: No more than a few thousand tigers now survive in pockets of Asia, a continent they once roamed far and wide. The largest of them, the Siberian tiger, is today almost entirely confined to the little-populated Russian Far East, a region that may offer the species' best hope for survival.Peter Matthiessen brings to the Siberian tiger the deep knowledge of and feeling for the natural world that have made classics of his previous books. He has made of the tiger's dilemma not a manifesto but a drama -- underscored by Maurice Hornocker's one-of-a-kind photographs -- that conveys powerfully what a loss to our collective imagination the extinction of these great cats would be.
