This is a good hardcover, 1924 Wise Publishing. Given the age of this book (100 yrs old), it is no surprise that the binding is cracked, BUT the pages are still tight to the binding, the binding has just cracked from the boards along spine. (see photo) Overall this is in good condition, a rare series published in 23 volumes as The Complete Writings of John Burroughs. When closed the binding flaw is not detectable but opened it becomes apparent. But there are no loose pages. There is light natural tanning to pages from age and brown spot inside front cover where store label removed (see photo). There is no serious foxing inside. Top edges tipped in gold gilt showing some wear but overall good. The olive green hardcover boards are embossed with design on front and have the appearance of leather binding although it is not. Rough cut page edges as often found in binding of the time. The hardcover boards are very good, clean and now showing much wear. Crown octavo book size or 5" x 8" with 285 pages.

John Burroughs was an Ameican naturalist and essayist. The first of his essays was Wake-Robin, published in 1871. He was less a scientific naturalist and more of a literary naturalist who recorded the natural world through his perceptions. His work reflects such.

This is Volume 13, Far and Near, by John Burroughs Wake Robin Edition from The Complete Writings of Burroughs. Frontispiece photo features Mr Burroughs in his study. Chapters include; In Green Alaska, (with 20 subchapters of the subject such as The Inland Passage, White Pass, Siberia, St Lawrence Island and more), Wild Life About My Cabin, New Gleanings in Old Fields, A Birds' Free Lunch, August Days and more.
