Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

Uncommon signed first edition, first reprint hardback of LIFE ON EARTH A Natural History, by David Attenborough and published by British Broadcasting Corporation - William Collins Sons & Co Ltd, London, in 1979. Signed by Attenborough on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (clean light brown cloth boards and gold lettering to spine) with minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (two-inch creasing line to front spine ridge). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"This book, like the BBC TV series on which it is based, is an attempt to give us a history of nature rather than a conventional natural history, and it is told as much as possible in terms of animals & plants alive today. The result is a pageant of life - a re-enactment of 3,500 million years of history with a cast of characters drawn from the whole range of life on earth today.

The book's thirteen chapters cover all the major events in the evolution of life: the first multi-celled creatures; the move from sea to land, and from land to air; the development of warm-blooded animals; and the evolution of man himself.

David Attenborough writes with great vividness, clarity and perception, and the illustrations, taken by some of the world's leading wildlife photographers, do full justice to the text. This book is a permanent record of one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by British television. It will become a standard introduction to natural history, as well as a source of fascination for anyone with an interest in the most awesome of all stories - the story of life itself."

A signed first edition, early print hardback of this landmark title is becoming very hard to find.

4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 319 pages. Illustrated with full-page superb color photographs throughout.

ISBN: 0 00 219091 - 5
