Des Moines: The State of Iowa, 1943. Hard Cover. Good / No Dustjacket. Item #062879
Pages clean except for a library stamp at the head edge of the page block and another at the first text page; no other library marks or attachments, though. A little gentle toning in the margins. Binding leans slightly to the right but remains tight, full cloth cover showing a few tiny, pale spots scattered at the right front and some shelf rubbing at corners and spine ends, otherwise excellent. 358pp. Articles include a number of catalogues of species in fungal, entymological, and herpetological groups found in the state of Iowa at the time and a lengthy study of Schiaparelli's Shooting Stars; diagrams throughout.
