A collectable book and easy to see why. This wonderful book, written and illustrated by Margaret Waring Buck is packed full of her sensitively captured drawings and accurate descriptions of wildlife to be found in or around ponds and streams. Originally a children's book but now sought-after by collectors, this book is a real treasure trove of information designed to inspire the naturalist in all of us.

Hardback, with dustcover (condition fair), interior in excellent condition. Published by Abingdon Press in 1955.

    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.

    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.
