New York: Viking, 1941. First Printing of the First Edition. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to the folds and extremities and shallow chipping to the head of the spine. Steinbeck's signed note laid in. 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.
