Friends in Feathers

£49.00

Product description

Gene Stratton-Porter was a very remarkable American naturalist, conservationist, photographer, movie maker and author. This book is a summary of her studies of birds. The sub title reads “Character studies of native American birds which, through friendly advances, I induced to pose for me, of succeeded in photographing by good fortune, with the story of my experiences in obtaining their pictures.” There is a handwritten dedication on the ffep which reads “To my Bubbles Xmas 1922 in appreciation of his love of the “Friends in Feathers”. This is not signed but the hand is certainly similar to examples on the net of Gene’s writing. However this is a London edition and she was, by then, resident in southern California.

John Murray hardback with no DJ. Dark green cloth covered boards with tipped in picture of a red bodied bird on its nest on the front. Very large number of black and white photographs throughout the book. Corners are bumped and spine ends a bit worn, minor marks on the outside of the covers, some foxing and tanning. No other marks apart from the dedication. Binding good.

A very unique and collectable book of ornithology, of particular interest to US birders.
