Fine in Clean, Little Repaired D. J jacket. From the inside cover: "In 148 photographs (59 in color) and 16 pages of figures, the author pictures all genera and species of the world's waterfowl, including the extinct forms. No comparable collection of photographic illustrations exists in a single volume. The text offers a general introduction to the various species of waterfowl in nontechnical language, concise and readable but based on years of scholarship recognized for its excellence. A major feature of this book is a comprehensive annotated list of genera and species of waterfowl. Added to this is a key for the identification of waterfowl. With the annotated list, the identification key, and the 148 plates in this volume, bird watchers can join researchers and scholars in putting to good use this amply illustrated introduction to the waterfowl of the world."
