Very Good. No Dust Jacket. Large quarto, hardcover, light corner wear else VG in gren cloth spine and beige boards. No dj. Illustrated with 98 Photographs. Author explains in his modest Foreword that his duties as High Commissioner in India left him little leisure for indulgence in his hobby--bird-watching. Restricted in time to the two hours before breakfast and in space to the garden of his Delhi residence, he nevertheless managed to see and graphically describe many incidents that might have escaped a professional, scientific observer. Beautified by nearly 100 remarkable and magnificently reproduced photographs taken by Christina Loke, his book must be one of the most engaging records of bird-life ever written, charming both expert and amateur and surprising the hitherto uninterested, who could never have suspected that accounts in minute detail of bird courtship, mating, nest-building, and the hatching and training of the young could be made so fascinating. 192 pp. including index of birds. Color frontis of golden oriole.
