A Fine unmarked copy with dustjacket which has a small tear to bottom od spine and is not price clipped. Few groups of birds are more appropriately named than wildfowl, for they inhabit our wildest coasts and few remaining wilderness areas, yet most of the 38 species described here in detail are also widely familiar as they have been closely involved in our art, literature and sport for many centuries. Each species' account begins with a close look at the bird's history and conservation, to which are added details of distribution and population, plus sections on habitat, identification, behaviour, breeding, food and migration. The text is complemented by superb, specially commissioned paintings by Alastair Proud of all the birds described, plus silhouettes to aid identification, and many colour and monochrome photographs. A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.9 KILO WHICH MAY REQUIRE EXTRA SHIPPING COST 22. Fine/Very Good.
