Developed into its modern type in Kentucky, it was once known as the "Kentucky Saddler", and used extensively as an officer's mount in the American Civil War. In 1891, a breed registry was formed in the United States. Throughout the 20th century, the breed's popularity continued to grow in the United States, and exports began to South Africa and Great Britain. Since the formation of the US registry, almost 250,000 American Saddlebreds have been registered, and can now be found in countries around the world, with separate breed registries established in Great Britain, Australia, continental Europe, and southern Africa."

His 1947 book, Darwin's Finches, on the finches of the Galapagos Islands was a landmark work. He developed what is known as Lack's principle which explained the evolution of avian clutch sizes in terms of individual selection as opposed to the competing contemporary idea that they had evolved for the benefit of species (also known as group selection). His pioneering life-history studies of the living bird helped in changing the nature of ornithology from a collection oriented field.". Very Good+ in Good dust jacket .

"Seton was an early pioneer of the modern school of animal fiction writing, his most popular work being Wild Animals I Have Known (1898) , which contains the story of his killing of the wolf Lobo. He later became involved in a literary debate known as the nature fakers controversy, after John Burroughs published an article in 1903 in the Atlantic Monthly attacking writers of sentimental animal stories. The controversy lasted for four years and included important American environmental and political figures of the day, including President Theodore Roosevelt.". Very Good .

"“In this work I have attempted to present the various defects in modern Bulldogs by pictorial diagrams in a way that will be readily understood, and have placed other diagrams showing the ideal points as laid down in the descriptions and Standards of the several Bulldog Clubs alongside them. Whilst most authorities are agreed on the subject in theory, their interpretations are as diverse as those of art critics, largely due to the fact that works on the Bulldog have hitherto been confined to written descriptions and discussions, without the necessary illustrative sketches to show the points in a clear and unmistakable manner. I believe my sketches will demonstrate not only the defects, but also the actualities desired in this noble breed. ”" (from the preface of the book).. Very Good .

His work with the United States National Park Service inspired generations of interpreters across the world and continues to be a definitive text for the discipline. According to thematic interpretation expert, Sam H. Ham, Tilden's quotation on page 38 of Interpreting Our Heritage (which was taken from a US National Park Service administrative manual) has become one of the most cited phrases in the interpretation literature worldwide: Through interpretation, understanding; through understanding, appreciation; through appreciation, protection.
