Item Description

Having photographic nuts in my family, I was interested to read parts of this fascinating book written by one of the first wildlife photographers.  A far cry from instant phone and digital photography.  An inscription reads 1942.  this is the fifth impression.  Eighty Four photographs.  The book has foxing and the pages generally browned but all the pages are intact.  The cloth board covers have some fine insect damage to them and the spine has been replaced by a cloth binding which has stabilised the book.  Dont hesitate to ask any questions.


From Wiki:   Richard Kearton FZSFRPS (2 January 1862 – 8 February 1928) and Cherry Kearton (8 July 1871 – 27 September 1940), brothers, were a pair of British naturalists and some of the world’s earliest wildlife photographers. They developed innovative methods to photograph animals in the wild and in 1895 published the first natural history book to be entirely illustrated by wild photographs.[1]:21 Richard was a made a Fellow of the Zoological Society of London and Royal Photographic Society. Cherry later became a wildlife and news filmmaker, and friend to Theodore Roosevelt. The Royal Geographical Society created the Cherry Kearton Medal and Award in his honour.
