Here is a neat vintage book from London, part of the The King Penguin Books, 1952. It has a hard cover with matching Dust Jacket. The illustrator is G.E. Lodge who portrays many birds of England in realistic art work. First edition. A scarcer book in the series, this is a first edition and there are 16 wonderful plates by Lodge. In nice overall condition, there is a 2" x 1/2" section of the DJ along bottom front cut out to reveal the real cover beneath...they match!
