Here is a very nice hard-to-find vintage hardbound nature book for children. It is a First Edition, with copyright date of 1955 by Maxton Publishers, Inc. The book was illustrated by Alexander Seidel, Staff Artist of The American Museum of Natural History at that time. The text was written by Dean Amadon, PhD., Lamont Curator of Birds, also of The American Museum of Natural History.
The book features wonderful, realistic lithographed illustrations of many wild birds, some in color and others in black & white. The book is in very good condition with a bit of wear to the spine and corners of the cover. The book was one in a Series of Maxton Books for Young People. It appears the original price of this lovely book was $0.59!
