First edition, first printing. Original grey cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated throughout with colour plates and black and white head pieces by Watkins-Pitchford. A very good or better copy, the binding square and firm with a little fading to the spine and top edges of the boards and faint ghosting to the spine from the dustwrapper. The contents, with a little spotting to the text block edges and a couple of faint spots to the front free endpaper, are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owners' stamps or inscriptions. Complete with the price-clipped, lightly rubbed, nicked and creased original dustwrapper which has a few short closed tears at the edges and some small water stains at the spine.

A beautifully illustrated eulogy on the natural history of British watersides.
