American ethologist (1932–1985) who earned worldwide renown for her intimate studies of gorillas in the mountain forests of Rwanda. She was murdered under still-uncertain circumstances likely related to her uneasy relationship with Rwandan locals who saw her as a threat to the gorilla-related tourist and exportation industry. Signed book: Gorillas in the Mist. First edition. Boston: Hougton Mifflin, 1983. Hardcover with dustjacket, 6.25 x 9.25, 1983 pages. Signed and inscribed on the title page, “All best wishes to Mark, Dian Fossey, Oct. 26, 1984.” Some light wear to boards, and scattered wear, creases, and edge tears to dustjacket, otherwise fine condition.
