This hardcover book has over 1000 pages of birds, their history, latin names, and pictures both in black and white and in color. It’s also 7lbs heavy! Perfect for the Ornithologist in your life! The copyright date is 1936. The tops, sides and bottoms of the pages have faded color due to age. That’s the only wear with the book. The binding, cover jacket all are intact. Great resource guide for North American birds.
