The book has no dust cover. The spine has faded and the edges have a bit of damage. The book is signed by Bob Crass the author and is a first edition. There is browning on the pages mostly on the first few and back pages against the covers. There are inscriptions on the signed page of Hibbs and Ann. with a date. The book is nevertheless a nice reference copy with many illustrations.
This book is full of information set out for the layman interested in natural history. All will get pleasure and knowledge from this book. from the Foreword by Keppel H Barnard.
