"A GLOBAL ADVOCATE FOR ALL LIFE": PRESENTATION FIRST EDITION OF THROUGH A WINDOW, INSCRIBED BY JANE GOODALL

GOODALL, Jane. Through a Window. My Thirty Years with the Chimpanzees of Gombe. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990. Octavo, original half green cloth, original dust jacket. $350.

First American edition, issued same year as the first English edition, of Goodall's critically-praised successor to In the Shadow of Man, a distinctive presentation copy inscribed by her on the title page, "For D— Thank you so much for that exquisite framing of the tools. Fantastic, Jane Goodall."

Dr. Jane Goodall's "first 10 years at Gombe (Tanzania) on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika produced the classic In the Shadow of Man [1971). A fitting successor to that work… Through a Window continues the saga of the chimpanzee families with an engrossing account of animal behavior" (Publisher's Weekly). "Goodall's work with chimpanzees represents one of the Western world's great scientific achievements" (Stephen Jay Gould). She now travels extensively as "a global advocate for all life, challenging everyone to see ourselves as caretakers of the planet" (Bill Moyers). Preceded by the same year's first English edition.

A fine inscribed copy.
