A pocket-sized 1966 edition from the Observer reference book series, complete original paper dust-jacket.
Bound in mottled fawn leatherette, the characteristic Observer black font is debossed into the cover.
The binding of the book is tight and inside, the pages have a lovely sheen and the delicate illustrations have retained their vibrancy.
Compiled by S Vere Benson, the book describes 243 bird species and contains 200 illustrations in both colour and monochrome.
The Hygge Factor
A beautiful reference book that would make a thoughtful gift for a nature lover or an older child. Would also add a bit of country charm to a seasonal display.
