About this Item: (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1957 and 1960, 2nd edition), 1960. African Handbook of Birds, Series I, Volumes I and II. Two 8vo volumes; original grey buckram, titled in gilt on spine and with gilt map device to upper cover in each case; pictorial dustwrappers; pp. xxv + 846, viii + 1113 + (65), incl. index; colour plates, photographs, and distribution maps. Dustwrappers rather foxed and edgeworn, that for Volume One with broad sellotape repair to head of spine; moderate foxing to endpapers; regular light browning and some spotting elsewhere. Good. "This superb work when completed will be comparable to, say, Witherby's Handbook of British Birds. But Witherby had many competent predecessors; Mr Mackworth-Praed and Captain Grant are pioneers. And Witherby dealt only with these islands, whereas the present volume [volume 1] covers about a quarter of a continent. It is a most workmanlike production, giving the observer in the field every possible aid in bird-identification." - New Statesman and Nation. Seller Inventory # 192
