REID, Charles.
Bird Life Containing Over One Hundred Illustrations of Birds and Their Nests from Photographs by CHARLES REID, WISHAW.

pp. 105, (i) Advertisement. Frontispiece, title vignette and ninety-seven plates with a photographic illustration inset to the front cover [not the 'over one hundred' called for] but complete. Original green cloth with photo inset, a trifling patch of wear to the foot of the spine, else a very good copy.

*COPAC records the first edition of [1909] and only one location for this later reissue, the Alexander Library, Oxford University. The vignette on the title is dated for 1930 and signed with Reid's initials - C. R. None of the other illustrations is thus identified. All editions appear to be rather scarce in commerce.

T. N. Foulis. London & Edinburgh.
