COMMON BIRDS OF THE GARDEN; OF THE WOODLANDS; OF THE WATERSIDE, OF THE FIELDS & COMMONS [set of Four Folders Reproduced from The Birds of the British Isles By T. A. Coward in the Wayside and Woodland Series]

By Coward, T. A.; Blyton, Enid

London: Frederick Warne & Co., 1936. Complete set of four concertina folders, printed on card, each with eight plates selected from Coward's The Birds of the British Isles with footnotes by Enid Blyton. Folder No. 1 Common Birds of the Garden. Folder No. 2 Common Birds of the Woodlands. Folder No. 3 Common Birds of the Waterside (Inland). Folder No. 4 Common Birds of the Fields and Commons. All in very good condition. Undated but probably dating to around 1936. They were available in two formats - printed on card for 3/-, or on paper for 2/- (this set is printed on card) and were available singly, or as a set of four in a card wallet. (this set does not include a wallet). Enid Blyton is credited with making the selection of birds, and writing the notes. Very scarce in any format. [further bibliographic notes: Two other sets of 'Nature Observation Pictures' were published by Warne in the same format - Flowers and Wild Animals. In the case of the Birds, it was another opportunity for Warne to showcase the illustrations by Keulemans and Thorburn already used in the 3 vol Coward from 1919 onwards, and about to be used in the Observer's Book of Birds - 1937 onwards.]. First Edition Thus. Paperback. Very Good. Illus. by Keulemans and Thorburn. 12mo.
