THE BIRDS OF AFRICA (7 VOLUMES)
by Leslie H. Brown; Emil K. Urban; Kenneth Newman; C. Hilary Fry
Illustrated by Martin W. Woodcock; Peter Hayman; Ian Willis
Published by Academic Press. 1983
Slightly better than very good condition in a very good dustwrapper. Large format. Colour and b/w illustrations. The most authorative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa. Includes full bibliographies, acoustic references and indexes.
Volume I is a second printing with corrections. Volume II-VII are first editions, ascending years. Some text blocks a little grubby with minor foxing or shelf wear. Contents are fine. Dustwrappers are faded at spines. Volume V has a small closed tear to top front edge of dustwrapper and top of spine, Volume III has a small stain and closed tear to top rear edge of spine (minor). Some dustwrappers have creasing at vertical spine edge. Overall a very nice set.
