CHAPTER TWO
(Waterfall, KZN, South Africa)

Book Description South African Natural History Publication Company, Cape Town. Hard Cover. Condition: Fair++. No Jacket. Cream buckram covered boards are grubby. Gilt titling to spine and front board is dulled. Tape burn and insect staining to ends. Nibbled erosion to back end paper fore-edge. Damp stain and rippling from front endpaper through to sponsors' page. Although rippling passes through the paperblock it does become less evident and does not interfere onto the plates. The plates contained in this publication are by lithographic process and tw-thirds the size of Lighton's original. Five of the original plates are not contained in this publication: the frontispiece plate of Ostrich and Ground Hornbill was omitted because of its horizontal format; two original plates were lost in enemy action in England during WWII; Plate 48 - Sunbirds was lost by a tobacco company in Cape Town who were using it for the printing of "cigarette cards" and Plate 40 - Cisticolas simply 'disappeared'. (Dn-WY-EEW1L) Size: Elephant Folio. Seller Inventory # 190202
