The Nature Book

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

"A popular description by pen and camera of the delights and beauties of the open air." The six books make up the complete basic set, though there was a further supplementary volume dealing with school gardening. The books are illustrated with many black and white photos and some tipped-in reproductions of paintings. An interesting feature of each book is the colour illustration on one of the front pages which flaps back to reveal its inner workings. Note that this is an (undated) subscription edition.

Condition: All six volumes are in a similar condition. The tops and bottoms of the spines are a little ragged. Moderate shelf wear to the covers, and occasional staining. Cover edges a little rubbed. Most hinges are split, though the bindings are intact.
