Giving Good Weight by John McPhee [FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING]
FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING  FARRAR STRAUS GIROUX
Book is in excellent condition. Some light shelf wear and a few scratches to dust jacket. Book itself is like new with a bit of foxing to outer page edges.
A collection of John McPhee's classic essays, grouped here with four others, including "Brigade de Cuisine," a profile of an artistic and extraordinary chef; "The Keel of Lake Dickey," in which a journey down the whitewater of a wild river ends in the shadow of a huge projected dam; a report on plans for the construction of nuclear power plants that would float in the ocean; and a pinball shoot-out between two prizewinning journalists.
