Harrap, 1938), 1938. 8vo; original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; no dustwrapper; pp. xvii + (i) + 203, incl. index; colour frontis. with captioned tissue-guard; plates, incl. colour; line drawings in text. All illustrations by the author. Cloth a little rubbed; backstrip frayed at head and tail; gift inscription to front free endpaper; some moderate foxing and occasional browning. Good condition. Subtitle: "Mysteries of bird life. Migrations. Nesting habits. Birds of beaches and deserts. Winged jewels. Clowns of birddom. Valuable birds. Bird law courts. Bird communists. Flightless birds." From the author's introduction: "In telling these stories of strange birds I have not attempted to dwell upon their importance in relation to mankind, which has nothing to do with their interesting ways, and neither have I attempted to delve into their classification, their distribution or their Latin or scientific names. Instead I have endeavoured to describe the unusual, little known and oftentimes astonishing lives and habits of certain birds of our own country and of distant lands. . And as far as possible I have confined the stories to birds whose strange habits have come under my personal observation, and have surprised, amused or interested me as greatly as I hope these stories will interest my readers.".
