by William T. Cooper; Joseph M. Forshaw
Illustrated by William T. Cooper
Published by Collins. 1st. 1977
Slightly better than very good condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. Very large format. Gorgeous full-page colour illustrations. Orange cloth spine, beige cloth sides. A feast for the lover of beautiful bird paintings and an essential work of reference for the ornithologist.
Top & tail of spine and corners lightly bumped. Bump to top corner has carried on through to contents meaning that the corner tip of each page is creased (only affecting margin). Pictorial dustwrapper is lightly creased at corners else nice and bright. Contained in publisher's slipcase which is lightly scuffed and bumped, small split to lower rear edge.
