BURROWS, Roger. Wild Fox. Newton Abbot: David & Charles. 1968.

8vo. Original cloth and wrapper; pp. 203, frontispiece, 16 b&w photographic plates, 1 map, text illustrations; wrapper a little rubbed to edges, very good. Provenance: ownership signature of Ian Askew to ffep, with original watercolour sketch of two ducks by Philip Rickman, signed by the artist, to front fly-leaf. Askew (1921-2014), High Sherriff of Sussex and huntsman with the Southdown Hunt, was a neighbour of the acclaimed nature artist Rickman (1891-1982). This charming little sketch of a pair of ducks on the water amongst reeds is instantly recognisable as an example of Rickman's art with its very delicate brushwork and characteristic composition.
First edition. A three-year long study of a family of foxes in lowland Gloucestershire.
