Old, Game Bird Carving Book by Bruce Burk -Hardbound

This is a great book for anyone interested in carving game birds. It starts with the basics of wood carving, painting and finishing a project including bases for displaying your work. It offers patterns which can be enlarged as desired for a variety of birds and discussing many different techniques for creating beautiful carvings. It also includes a section of actual pictures of bird anatomy realistic comparisons. There are 242 pages including the index and is all in black and white. This is a 1974, fourth printing of this edition which I believe is the first of his series. It was published by Winchester Press of New York with a 1972 copyright by the author, Bruce Burk. It has it's original dust jacket over the hardcover.

It is in very good condition with minimal wear. The linen covered hardbound cover has been protected by the dust jacket. It has a tight spine and the pages of the book are unmarked, fresh and clean. The dust jacket is fair with some edge wear and tears along the edges. The previous owners name is written in ink in the front cover page.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
