Oblong quarto [28.5 cm x 31 cm] Rust-colored silk cloth over boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good plus condition. The boards are ever so slightly concave, and there are very minor markings on the bottom edges of the covers. In a near fine dust jacket, with minimal surface and edge wear.
From the dust jacket- "It is Porter's concern with the intimate details of nature, his miniaturization of the world, that gives his work its special power and appeal. The Southwest captured here is unique and unrepeatable especially so because many of the scenes recorded have been altered during the past half century. As chronicler and interpreter, he passes on to the viewer impressions left by man and nature on a changing and timeless land."
