About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Birds

Publisher: Simon and Schuster / New York

Publication Date: 1958

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket

Edition: 1st Edition


A "Giant Little Golden Book", the A present indicating 1st edition. Bright illustrated cover with a few tiny, dark speckles and some wear at corners and spine extremities, the upper spine quite rough for 1/2 inch, but only a small amount of missing material. Spine is blue foil with stars, the blue continued on the rear. Interior clean, unmarked, free of tears, the paper somewhat browned at edges, but not especially fragile. Almost 50 species are accurately pictured, usually in appropriate environmental settings, often with admiring youngsters [Eloise Wilkin's delightful, improbably sweet children]. Brief captions, some rhymed, offer bits about each bird's character and behavior; other pages contain more general information, about the varieties of eggs and nests, for example. 56 pages, 6.5" x 8" [W].
