Sea of Cortez. John Steinbeck.

Sea of Cortez.

New York: Viking, 1941. First Printing of the First Edition. A Very Good plus copy in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with wear to the folds and extremities and chipping. There are two slight dampstains to the inside of the front panel. In 1940, John Steinbeck and his friend Ed Ricketts sailed out of Monterey Bay to the Sea of Cortez. Shifting his focus from fiction to science, Steinbeck wrote that his new work "must jump to include other species beside the human. This is why my interest in biology and ecology have become so sharpened." The account that Steinbeck wrote about the expedition includes Ricketts's catalogue of marine invertebrates found in Baja.
