Woodland, Moor and Stream

£24.99

Product description

This is a 1911 edition of the book originally published in August 1889.
The author was a Kentish born naturalist with an inborn passionate love for all wild creatures. He writes with knowledge gained by wading through reeds, crawling betwen hillocks, lying flat and wriggling like an eel, to watch the creatures around him.
Contents Include: A Winter's day on the Marshes; Haunts of the Otter; The Badger; The Fox; The Heron and his Haunts; An Autumn Ramble in Surrey; Birds of Prey; Martens, Polecats, Weasels and Stoats; Fresh Water Fishes.
The blue cloth boards have the title embossed on the front and in gilt on the spine. The cover has light general handling marks; corners and spine ends are bumped and worn with some small surface loss and chips to spine ends; all edges have slight wear. Text block edges are browned and dust darkened. Foxing is evident to end papers and early leaves; occasional soil marks on a few pages. End paper joins are split partially at the front and fully at the back, exposing webbing, but the binding is intact; occasional partial cracks inside.
A former owner's initials, 'W.B.' are written in purple pencil on the front end paper.
A fascinating, entertaining book which will engross nature lovers.
