The Wild Places signed by Robert Macfarlane 1st / 1st 2007
First edition and first print published by Granta in 2007. This copy is in fine condition. The wrapper and book are both immaculate and the book looks unread. It is not price clipped. The book is signed to the title page without dedication by the author.
Guided by monks, questers, scientists, philosophers, poets and artists, both living and dead, the author explores our changing ideas of the wild. From the cliffs of Cape Wrath to the holloways of Dorset, the storm-beaches of Norfolk, the salt marshes and estuaries of Essex and the moors of Rannoch and the Pennines, his journeys become the conductors of people and cultures, past and present, who have had intense relationships with these places.
