this looks like it may be v interesting.

to anyone awaiting this book with bated breath with an interest in geography, check out 'Anarchy, Geography, Modernity: the radical social thought of Elisee Reclus' by John Clark. Reclus was much less well-known in anglophone anarchist circles (most of his works aren't in english yet), but his contribution to geography was very important indeed.

Reclus is not totally unknown, there are 2 biographies in English, and Jura Media in Australia reproduced some of his essays and pamphlets. (Make that 3 in English if you include the Clark)

And someone going by the name of CGH Services did the same here nearly 20 years ago - with small run of pamphlets of his essays on anarchism, vegetarianism and the great kinship from the journal "19th century."

Thanks for the information on John Clark book - I've not seen it - and at the price copies go for on Abebooks, I'm unlikely too as well.

Sort of book I wish AK Press would do!

Reclus titles on eBay

Just had a look and there are 2 titles by Elise Reclus available in UK at very reasonable prices (for antiquarian books) - indeed the p&p is more than the books.

Once I've done my sums I might bid for a couple myself!

have a copy of The Anarchist Way to Socialism, Marie Fleming's biogaphy of Reclus if any one wants to borrow it.
