This is such a beautiful book, with profuse illustrations by William Foster (256 figures of birds across 64 coloured plates). It is missing the dust jacket, but the cover is gilt embossed with an image of a bird of prey. Published by Routledge in 1910, the exterior shows signs of wear, but the interior condition is good for its age. For more information or photographs, please get in touch.
