The second of the original ‘British Birds and their Nests’ books of series 536. It is written by Brian Vesey-Fitzgerald and illustrated by Allen Seaby. Seaby was an accomplished artist with a long career as artist and lecturer by the time he illustrated this book. and he died before it was published. Only the early editions were originally issued with a dustwrapper.
A good copy of this book with two notable flaws. The back panel of the DJ is a little creased and there is an inky mark on the bottom of the front cover (see photo), although this is hidden under the DJ. The DJ is not price-clipped and has blue, open-wing endpapers.
