Hardback, first edition 1962. A unassuming book but wow what incredible illustrations!  133 pages - each with a description of an individual bird with a facing full page colour plate by E. Demartini. Although the dust cover is a little tatty around the edges, the book itself is in very good condition and a real treasure.

Please also see it's companion book - Birds of Field and Forest which is equally beautiful.

If you would like more photographs or details please get in touch.
