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.

    The Bladnoch shop is currently closed.

    Online orders are being fulfilled as normal, but please allow extra time for posting as I am making less frequent trips to the Post Office.

    If your order is urgent, please get in touch.


    The Bladnoch shop has on-street parking outside. Accessed from the pavement, there is a small step of 3cm and then the threshold of 2cm height.

    The door width is 71cm.

    The shop is on one level, with shelves at various heights - staff will be very happy to assist in passing customers any items they wish to handle.

    Although the shop is small, there is room to manoeuvre a wheelchair inside.
