Silent Spring

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1962.

Price: $275.00

Hardcover. First edition. Bottom corner a little bumped and frayed, previous owner's named penned on the half title, else near fine in about very good dustwrapper with rubbing and small nicks at the spine ends. A classic of environmental literature, a long essay that appeared in *The New Yorker* and eventually resulted in the banning of the use of DDT. A modestly flawed but presentable copy.
