Brand, Stewart, ed.  The next whole Earth catalog. Sausalito, CA: Point, 1980. Folio (36.5 cm, 14.4"). 608 pp.; illus.
$75.00

Stated first edition, first printing of the revised version — after a long gap in printing — of a legendary guide to tools for "individuals to conduct their own education, find their own inspiration, shape their own environment, and share the adventure with whoever is interested." More than a catalogue, this is a compendium of reviews, extensive excerpts, and analyses of some of the most empowering books and products of the 20th century, leavened with bits of poetry, meditations, and musings on modern life. The preface here notes that only 11% of the material here is repeated from the Last Whole Earth Catalog, and that about 975 items are reviewed here for the first time.

Publisher's printed paper wrappers; spine and lower front corner creased, edges showing mild shelfwear. Lower margin of first page with faint rubber-stamped numeral. Pages gently age-toned, otherwise clean, with all tear-out cards still present. Outstanding both as sociological insight and as general reading.  (32344)   Please RESHELVE This.
