Item specifics

Seller notes: Large heavy hardback illustrated with 132 drawings in colour. Book is in fairly solid condition for its weight and age, although there is some general looseness to the binding and some gapping between some pages visible, there is also a crack throug to binding between publishers page and preface. Pages have some tanning, marks, creases and there are age spots throughout, mainly to the margins but more prelevant on some pages. There is also block tanning to pages x an xi of the introduction where a newspaper clipping has been stored, I have left it in place and it shows a Japanese bomb striking a Chinese vessel on the Yangtse. The front plate has a cover sheet which is loose,, none of the other plates have covers, and there is a small split to the middle bottom of the front plate. There is also a small edge stain which appears to have started from the bottom of the front cover and spreads through to page 11, effectively page 30 including the introduction, this does not encroach (cont.)

Beautifully illustrated book with full descriptions of each bird pictured.

Large heavy hardback illustrated with 132 drawings in colour. Book is in fairly solid condition for its weight and age, although there is some general looseness to the binding and some gapping between some pages visible, there is also a crack throug to binding between publishers page and preface. Pages have some tanning, marks, creases and there are age spots throughout, mainly to the margins but more prelevant on some pages. There is also block tanning to pages x an xi of the introduction where a newspaper clipping has been stored, I have left it in place and it shows a Japanese bomb striking a Chinese vessel on the Yangtse. The front plate has a cover sheet which is loose,, none of the other plates have covers, and there is a small split to the middle bottom of the front plate. There is also a small edge stain which appears to have started from the bottom of the front cover and spreads through to page 11, effectively page 30 including the introduction, this does not encroach on the text or pictures and in fact is only just over 1 cm wide and extends about 0.5 cm onto the margin. The boards have fading, spine in particular, rubbing with cloth loss and marks, as pictured.

I am always happy to combine postage on my items and to ship internationally, please get in touch if you need a price.

Every effort is made to describe my books accurately and honestly, however the odd error does creep in occasionally.

Single books are shipped in new padded envelopes.
