A superb association copy of this retrospective tribute to the legendary anthropologist, conservationist, and scientist, inscribed to the National Geographic Society.
"For all my friends at the National / Geographic Society. The constitution / of the Society — magazine, films, TV — / has been HUGE. This book would never / have been without your help over the / years. A million times THANK YOU / Jane Goodall."
For almost her entire career, Jane Goodall has been associated with the National Geographic Society — who funded her earliest groundbreaking research on chimpanzees, sponsored her as an explorer in residence, and most recently mounted a monumental retrospective exhibition of her life ("Becoming Jane"). In conjunction with the publication of this book and an October 2010 profile in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC magazine, Goodall's non-profit institute presented their Global Leadership Award to National Geographic, and this book was presumably inscribed at the October 11th, 2010 event to celebrate that award. While books signed by Goodall are far from uncommon, they are with any kind of association, let alone one as strong, warm, and important as this.
