First edition of this Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Quarto, original cloth, illustrated throughout. Boldly signed by Edward O. Wilson who has added a drawing of an ant on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Marianne Perlak. Uncommon signed.

This landmark work, the distillation of a lifetime of research by the world's leading myrmecologists, is a thoroughgoing survey of one of the largest and most diverse groups of animals on the planet. Hölldobler and Wilson review in exhaustive detail virtually all topics in the anatomy, physiology, social organization, ecology, and natural history of the ants. In large format, with almost a thousand line drawings, photographs, and paintings, it is one of the most visually rich and all-encompassing views of any group of organisms on earth. It will be welcomed both as an introduction to the subject and as an encyclopedia reference for researchers in entomology, ecology, and sociobiology.
