Beard was known for his death-defying wildlife photography and his sometimes beautiful, sometimes nightmarish, collage diaries. His New York Times obituary quotes descriptions of him by other newspapers: "'Peter Beard gentleman, socialite, artist, photographer, Lothario, prophet, playboy and fan of recreational drugs is the last of the adventurers.' The Observer said. ... 'James Dean grown up,' another British paper, The Evening Standard, called him. ... 'The hard-partying septuagenarian shutterbug,' The Daily News of New York wrote." Dust jacket present. First Edition.
