The Birdman. Memories of birds
Henry Douglas-Home, birdwatcher extraordinary, the scion of one of Scotland’s noblest families, ardent conservationist and raconteur, has committed to paper the experiences of a lifetime of living with birds. This is an unusual and highly personal book, with the freshness and vitality that are the mark of the true amateur naturalist. The author has an acute eye for the oddities of nature as well as for the eccentricities of his relatives and friends. Green cloth covers. Gilt title on spine. Dust jacket has slight nicks to top of spine.
