1997 1st edition. Folio (288 x 363mm). Pp xxiv,347. Magnificent colour plates and photographs throughout, bibliography. Dark blue cloth, spine titled in gilt.

The second volume deals with a few more bird species, and with mammals. It also includes a detailed section on the history of breeding game fowl for hackles, a chapter on modern hackle production in the USA, and a history and discussion of silks and tinsels for fly-tying.
