From the preface: ” In this volume I have endeavoured to give descriptions of the Game-Birds and Water-fowl found within South African limits – that is to say, south of a line drawn through the Zambesi River from east to west.I trust that in all cases the illustrations will be sufficient to enable the sportsman readily to identify any Game-Bird he may shoot. It must be remembered, however, that immature birds often differ very much from those in adult plumage; I regret it was not possible to figure the birds in every stage.With regard to the habits of many species, I am greatly indebted to Serg. C.G. (Finch) Davies, Cape Mounted Riflemen, whose excellent field work has been of the greatest help to me. All notes referring to Pondoland and Griqualand have been communicated to me by him.”65 bright colour plates by Davies. Condition is very Good. Foxing throughout, but plates remain largely unsullied.
