How it works


This is an unused copy from the publisher's stock. It would have been a subscribers' edition but is unnumbered and lacks the dustjacket.

Organised into habitats, the standard edition (see Lot 110) was described on publication as the best field guide to the birds of Southern Africa - "except that it weighs two kilograms!"

Endpaper colour maps of habitats. 488 pp of colour illustrated text and 4 indexes on matt art paper + 2 marker ribbons.

The good feel of the cloth covers perhaps outweighs the decorative printed paper boards of the standard edition.
