    The End of the Game. by Beard, Peter Hill

    New York: Viking Press, 1965. First edition of the photographer's first book with over 75 black-and-white and color photographic plates. Tall quarto, original ivory cloth. Signed by the author on the title page, "Salome Peter Beard Hog Ranch Nairobi." Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows light wear. On its publication in 1965, Beard's "book was immediately acclaimed, with not one but two glowing reviews in The New York Times In addition to being singularly beautiful (with its luscious printing and scrapbook aesthetic), The End of the Game, is thoughtful as well. Long taken as a seminal book on wildlife conservation, it is actually an epic visual poem on the subject of loss" (Roth, 170; Open Book, 208).
