Hardcover 1st edition - very minor shelfwear otherwise a fine clean tight copy. From the publisher:"Neither God Nor Devil is a lavishly illustrated examination of humankind's relationship with the wolf. The author is a gifted painter & writer whose love for the animal does not cloud her vision. In a book that is as notable for its scholarship & acute observation as for its beauty, she argues that it is not just the people who have historically hated & feared wolves -- farmers, wayfarers, competitors for game -- who do them injustice by inflating their fearsomeness. The first of this book's three sections explores the natural history of the wolf; we meet the animal without our baggage of expectation & apprehension. The second section surveys the wolf's place in the myths of many cultures. Finally, our relationship with wolves is explored in a chronological overview that demonstrates where our paths diverged, & what factors were behind our deification & demonization of a beast that deserves neither view. Readers will take their first look at Neither God nor Devil for its extraordinary illustrations. They will stay with it for its passionate but clear-eyed view of a fascinating species. And their viewpoints will be radically adjusted by the author's astutely researched, deftly written text."

Light edgewear, slight age toning and spine crease otherwise a good clean solid copy. From the publisher:"Ever since men first hunted for honeycomb in rocks and daubed pictures of it on cave walls, the honeybee has been seen as one of the wonders of nature: social, industrious, beautiful, terrifying. No other creature has inspired in humans an identification so passionate, persistent or fantastical.In this gem of a book, award-winning writer Bee Wilson explores the magical world of the honeybee. From the hive to honey, from beekeepers to honeymooners, via Aristotle, Shakespeare, Napoleon and Sherlock Holmes, here is a book that delights and surprises at every turn. And there is even a recipe or two."
