WILDFOWL OF THE BRITISH ISLES. By Peter Scott and Hugh Boyd.

1957 1st edition. 8vo (155 x 246mm). Pp66,xxix[ills]. Colour frontispiece and 15 colour plates by Peter Scott, b/w illustrations, bibliography. Brick red cloth, spine titled in gilt with gilt duck motif to upper board.

Essentially a vehicle for Scott's ident paintings, this is a guide to distinguishing between the various species of wildfowl which frequent the British Isles. The Canada Goose, Egyptian Goose and Mandarin Duck are included as being "now established in a feral state." Lots of text in species by species articles each of which summarise the state of knowledge at the time of publication. Interesting, with many good pictures.
