4to. Original orange cloth with green dustwrapper printed in green and black; pp. xiv + 368, frontispice, 14 colour plates and text illustrations by Peter Scott, 16 pages of photographic illustrations; fine.
First edition. Monographs of the Nature Conservancy number 3, put together by the Wildfowl Trust in Slimbridge, of which Peter Scott was the founder. This is a comprehensive account of the distribution of wildfowl throughout the British Isles, calling upon the research and authorship of several contributors both amateur and professional, with magnificent illustrations by Scott which are, as the foreward notes, an 'uncommon pleasure' in a government funded publication.
