This is a two volume work with the original dust jackets. The books are tight, bright, and very clean. There is a former owner name on the reverse of the end papers in both volumes. There is a touch of wear mostly in a slight fading at the edges of the cloth covered book boards. There are 950 color portraits of birds by Major Allan Brooks. These books are heavy because of the glossy paper for the pages and may require extra postage if shipped overseas by air. The end papers depict the bird flyways of North America. These books have been well cared for. The dust jackets are plain paper printed with a pictorial of birds in flight. There is some staining and edge wear to the jackets. A little uncommon in the original jackets. Jackets protected in new, see-through, removable mylar cover. ; Vol. 1/2/2007; 8vo
