This charming and collectable book, features beautifully observed illustrations and useful identifying information about life on the sea-shore. I cannot find a publication date but assume it is early 20th century - it was certainly gifted to someone in 1934 as there is a pencil inscription in the front (see photo). The page ends are unclipped and therefore a little dogged but the condition of the pages and all illustrations is very good for the age of the book. For more information or photographs, please get in touch.
