New Naturalist No. 43. Green cloth, gilt titles. Colour frontis. 29 b/w photos, 34 line drawings, diagrams and maps.

Minor staining to lower edge of front board. Text block browned. Name & date in ink to front pastedown, hidden by front flap of dustwrapper. Some annotation to margins. Pictorial dustwrapper is browned and covered with clear laminate, faded to spine, wear to top of spine, some titles circled and ticked to rear panel list.
