Title: Birds Of Meadow And Stream
Author: Elizabeth Gould
Illustrator: Raymond Sheppard
Publisher: Blackie and Son
Book Condition: Poor/Fair
Jacket Condition: No Jacket
Description: Contains descriptions of 16 birds with matching colour illustrations. Unusually, it is presented in the form of a narrative rather than the more familiar encyclopaedic prose.
The strongest point of this little book is its cover together with the beautiful pictorial pastedowns. The title page appears to be missing. The pages are partially separated from the binding, but are still being held in place by the middle threads; some foxing around the edges. The cover is a little grubby and there is a minor loss in the bottom-left corner at the rear (approx. ½ cm × ½ cm).
Measures 7.6″ × 5.8″ (19 cm × 14.5 cm). 12mo. Unpaginated.
