Product description

H F & G Witherby Ltd., London, 1937 First edition. A ten-inch square box covered in green leatherette with a coloured title label on top and divided into two sections. On the top is a frame containing the book, and underneath are three double-sided 10-inch 78 rpm records of bird songs, each separated by a protective pad. The book is hardback bound in sky-blue cloth with the title on the spine in white; 12mo., [viii] 104 pp, with frontispiece and 28 plates, mostly full page b/w photographs; illustrated D/J. It describes the early techniques of recording birdsong in the field using a mobile recording studio, as well as descriptions of the birds, which can be heard on the accompanying three 78 rpm records. These are numbered 3, 4 and 5 (numbers 1 and 2 were included in the the first set "Songs of Wild Birds") and have green and gold labels.
Book condition: Fine, no bumps, no foxing, no inscriptions. D/J condition: VG, two 1 cm tears and some rubbing on the top front, probably caused by removing the book from the storage frame; not clipped. Record condition: We are unable to play the records; visual inspection indicates no obvious scratches but there are light surface marks; the brown paper sleeves are in Fine condition. Box condition: Good, surface shows some rubbing and handling marks but it is still solid and complete with no splits. The interior components, book frame and protective pads, are in Fine condition.
