Book Description Harper & Row, Publishers, 1978. Hardcover. Condition: Used: Like New. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1978. 304 pp. First US edition. Near fine copy with dust jacket. Two experts and two artists have joined forces to offer both an authoritative review of the family Ardeidae, and a set of breathtakingly beautiful plates that should serve for a long time to come as definitive portraits of the exceptionally varied species that belong to it. 61 species are dealt with in some detail, including an account of distribution/migration/habitat, general appearance/identification, and feeding/breeding behavior. Maps. Color plates from paintings by Robert Gillmor and Peter Hayman make the book a work of art as well as an authoritative monograph. Their plates combine beauty with accuracy and often provide a visual hint of the birds' favored habitats. Foreword by Roger Tory Peterson. Oversize-extra postage may be requested.
