"Midway Photos and Verse (...or Worse)", was written by Lewis Walker and Loring Hudson. This stated 1940s first edition, first printing World War II book features wonderful photographs of birds from throughout the Midway and Hawaiian islands. Paired with the photos are hand drawn caricatures and comical poems of the birds.
An example from the Laysan Albatross reads, "The Gooney Is Looney Thru Most of the year, It danes and prances for reasons not clear. It quirky and jerky, like people, I fear".
The book has blue cloth covers with a paste down picture and embossed title. This vintage history and art book is in very good vintage condition with only some very light scuffing on the cover. The pages are clean and the binding is tight.
A great book for the history buff, birder or nature photo enthusiast.
