The Man Who Found the Missing Link - the extraordinary life of Eugene Dubois, Shipman, Pat
61 Shipman, Pat The Man Who Found the Missing Link - the extraordinary life of Eugene Dubois
London Weidenfeld & Nicholson 2001 0297842900 / 9780297842903 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Illustrated, large octavo, pp (8), 580, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Pat Shipman's latest book is a scientific biography, written like a novel. It tells the story of one of the greatest scientists at the turn of the century - a Dutchman called Eugene Dubois - now largely forgotten, but the man whose discovery of the 'missing link' altered our view of human origins. Through force of personality, intellect and luck, Dubois pulled off one of the most amazing scientific coups of all time. As a young man, he decided that the most important contribution a man could make to science would be to find the missing link, the extinct form that exemplifies the evolutionary connection between humans and apes. It would be the proof of Darwinian evolution, then still controversial. He deduced where the missing link should be and found the fossil, now known as homo erectus, in Java in 1891. Shipman uses a fascinating range of letters, diaries and photographs from Dubois' personal collection, friends and enemies to create a story-driven account of how Dubois' life and career exploded across the world in the 1890s. This man's passion and scientific genius engulfed him and his friends' lives in a chain reaction of inspiration and betrayal that orbited around his precious fossils for forty years.]

The Follow, Spalding, Linda
65 Spalding, Linda The Follow
London Bloomsbury 1998 First UK edition Cloth Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Illustrated, small octavo, pp (4), 518, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper. [This work examines the impulse to "save" a species, combining issues of natural history, travel writing and reflections on motherhood, the reforming zeal of the 1960s and ethics of being "Green". Fascinated by the reputation of Birute Galdikas who studied a group of orang-utans in the wild, Linda Spalding took her own journey in order to discover why a woman would commit her life to a malaria-infested swamp and a group of orang-utans.]

Kinabalu - The Natural History, Ecology and Biodiversity of a World Heritage Mountain, Wong, K.M. & Chan, C.L.
73 Wong, K.M. & Chan, C.L. Kinabalu - The Natural History, Ecology and Biodiversity of a World Heritage Mountain
Kota Kinabalu 2015 9838121584 / 9789838121583 First Edition Paperback New 
Very well illustrated, small slim 8vo, pp xviii, 162, paperback, a very good new copy. [For very many explorers, naturalists and conservationists, there is no parallel to the spectacular Kinabalu and its special biological richness. During its genesis, this geologically young mountain attained remarkable height to over 4000 m, and has weathered climate change episodes through millenia that ranged from ice-capped peaks to today’s largely bare granitic summit area. The mountain has an impressive array of natural communities dispersed over a complex formation of rock types and topography, across an impressive elevation gradient from tropical, through temperate, to polar climatic regimes. The precipitous topography has kept many places unexplored and most ecological assemblages and organisms are only beginning to be better studied.]
