Birds of Prey, 1970, Series 536.
This is the penultimate book in the Nature series, 536, and the last one in the traditional format. (There was one more book issued after this ‘Birds of Northern Britain and Northern Europe’ – but the format and layout is rather different and some of the charm of the old books is lost). Birds of Prey was both written and illustrated by John Leigh-Pemberton.
This matt copy is just about in excellent condition condition inside and out – very little wear and clean, tight pages. I also believe it to be a first edition as it has a revised price and tally number of 260. A beautiful copy of a lovely book. As I type this, I’m wondering why it is my swaps box rather than on the shelves of my own collection.
