The Training of a Forester

Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1914. First edition. Hardcover. An uncommon volume, with no other copies available as of this writing. It's Pinchot's guide to the forestry profession, starting with the chapter "What is a Forest?" Here is schooling from the ground up from the master, the first Chief of the U.S. Forest Service. He writes in his preface, "It is to help in the decision of those who are considering forestry as a profession that this little book has been written." He almost dares the reader to believe he (or she) doesn't have what it takes: "Unless he has a compelling love for the Forester's life and the Forester's work, let him keep out of it." Amen (the same could be said of the bookselling). 

A handsome small octavo in green cloth with white stamped lettering, with black and white photos scattered through out. Very good with rubbing to corners and a black dot as if a remainder mark to bottom text block face. Very slight lean to spine. No jacket. Very good. Item #1095
