Wildlife of Britain

£25.00

Product description

Wild Life of Britain was written by F. Fraser Darling for the Britain in Pictures series, edited by W.J. Turner, and was first published in 1943. This edition is from 1947. There are eight colour plates and 28 black & white illustrations.

The boards and spine are bound in paper, with the title and author in white text on a green background. A white silhouette of a squirrel is drawn in the centre of the front board. The dust jacket has the same details, but with the addition of a blurb on the flap and a list of the other titles, in the BIP series, on the back. The boards have some shelf wear on the top and bottom edges. The spine has one crease running its length, but with little wear on the edges, whereas the head and tail bands are bumped and torn. There is a little foxing on the front end sheet and frontis pieces, as well as some discolouration. All the remaining pages of text and illustrations are slightly faded by light, with tiny specks of foxing on the edges and faces.

The dust jacket is not price clipped, as it has not been priced. It is covered in foxing, which is particularly visible on the back of the paper. The spine part of the dust jacket is creased with a number of tears. There are tears on the edges too.

Both hinges are secure and the binding is tight.
