Sacks, Oliver

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1997. STATED FIRST EDITION. The author has always been fascinated by islands, their remoteness, their mystery, above all the unique forms of life they harbor and he was drawn to the tiny Pacific atoll of Pingelap by intriguing reports of an isolated community born totally clorblind. He finds himself setting up a clinic where he listens to the achromatic islanders describe their colorless world in rich terms of pattern and tone, luminance and shadow and on Guam, where he goes to investigate the puzzling neurodegenerative paralysis endemic there for a century, he becomes for a brief time a neurologist. The islands reawaken his lifelong passion for botany, in particular the primitive cycad trees. Map endpapers, 20 illustrations and 1 other map. The author, born in London, is professor of neurology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. 153. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
