Description: A rare and fascinating book about the characteristics of blue whales – their diets, anatomy, &c. – presented in simple, accessible language.

Illustrated throughout with excellent greyscale and three-colour monochrome watercolours – the picture of a foetal whale is particularly cute!

Pictorial cloth boards have a few jots of foxing and a negligible pockmark on the rear. Spine bumped; corners straight. Internally, the book is as new: pages are crisp, clean, bright, tightly bound and completely free from foxing or tanning.

Measures 21 cm × 22 cm (8.4″ × 8.8″). Oversize 8vo. 39 pp.

Price: £8.50
