RECENT ORNITHOLOGICAL LITERATURE, 1983-1998, (being a supplement to The Auk, The Emu and The Ibis). {Richard Fitter's copies}
1 RECENT ORNITHOLOGICAL LITERATURE, 1983-1998, (being a supplement to The Auk, The Emu and The Ibis). {Richard Fitter's copies}
Paperback Good 
A long run of this publication, which rarely appears for sale. A major reference to recent bird taxonomy and research. Only the last issue in this run is actually numbered (issue 75), but I am assuming that what we have here are issues 27 - 75. Publication was, at times, slightly erratic, but I am offering : 1983 (parts 1 - 4), 1984 (1 - 4), 1985 (1 - 4), 1986 (1 - 4), 1987 (1 - 4), 1988 (1 - 4), 1989 (1 - 4), 1990 (1 - 4), 1991 (1 - 4), 1992 (1 - 3), 1994 (1 part), 1995 (2 parts), 1996 (3 parts), 1997 (4 parts), 1998 (1 part). I suspect that these are all actually consecutive, despite the erratic issuing, but can not guarantee this. Slightly worn overall, a few staples rusty, and a few covers slightly marked. [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, with his stamp on a few of the issues.]

The Exultant Ark - a pictorial tour of animal pleasure, Balcombe, Jonathan
9 Balcombe, Jonathan The Exultant Ark - a pictorial tour of animal pleasure
Berkeley University of California Press 2011 0520260244 / 9780520260245 Cloth As New Very Good 
Very well illustrated, quarto, pp x, 214, a very good copy in a dustwrapper showing only the very faintest signs of use. [Nature documentaries often depict animal life as a grim struggle for survival, but this visually stunning book opens our eyes to a different, more scientifically up-to-date way of looking at the animal kingdom. In more than one hundred thirty striking images, "The Exultant Ark" celebrates the full range of animal experience with dramatic portraits of animal pleasure ranging from the charismatic and familiar to the obscure and bizarre. These photographs, windows onto the inner lives of pleasure seekers, show two polar bears engaged in a bout of wrestling, hoary marmots taking time for a friendly chase, Japanese macaques enjoying a soak in a hot spring, a young bull elk sticking out his tongue to catch snowflakes, and many other rewarding moments. Biologist and best-selling author Jonathan Balcombe is our guide, interpreting the images within the scientific context of what is known about animal behavior. In the end, old attitudes fall away as we gain a heightened sense of animal individuality and of the pleasures that make life worth living for all sentient beings.]

London Collins 2007 0007199694 / 9780007199693 First Edition Hard Cover New New 
FIRST EDITION. Illustrated, pp xii, 482, an excellent copy in dustwrapper. [Today the RSPB has over one million members, reflecting the huge interest in birdwatching as a hobby. Over the years the growth in amateur birdwatchers has contributed enormously to our understanding of bird life, behaviour and populations. But what did we know about birds a thousand years ago and how has our understanding developed? Which species did we recognise, and when did people begin to record their sightings? Peter Bircham looks at the history of British ornithology from 1066 to the mid-1970s, exploring along the way the first bird book, the first British lists, the collectors, the first studies of migration, changes to the classification of species, the birth of the British Ornithologists' Union in 1858, to our current understanding of ornithology in Britain today. Peter has written an extremely authoritative and engrossing account, full of fascinating stories and extracts from poems and journals, which should appeal to the wider birding community as well as the New Naturalist audience.]

17 Cabot, David Wildfowl (New Naturalist 110)
London Collins 2009 0007146582 / 9780007146581 First Edition Hard Cover New New 
FIRST EDITION. Illustrated, pp viv, 460, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Provides a much-anticipated overview of the fascinating birds that have become icons of our diminishing wilderness areas. Wildfowl swans, geese and ducks have been the subject of poetry, fables, folklore and music, and a source of inspiration to writers, artists, historians and naturalists alike. Historically, they have featured prominently in our diet; more recently they have become the most widely domesticated group of birds. Wildfowl have been scientifically studied more intensively than any other group of birds and were one of the first groups to highlight more general issues of conservation. Their status as the most popular group of birds is underlined by the success of the original Wildfowl Trust (now the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust). David Cabot has been obsessed with wildfowl for nearly sixty years. In this seminal new work, he discusses the 56 species of wildfowl that have been recorded either in a natural state, or that have been introduced and now maintain self-sustaining populations in Britain and Ireland. He focuses on their social behaviour, feeding ecology and population dynamics, and in particular their seasonal migration patterns. He also explores the evolution and history of wildfowl and our long relationship with them, through popular mythology and legends, which continue to fascinate us with a sense of mystery and awe.

De la Mediterranee aux Etangs et Marecage    [Alan Davidson's copy], Centelles, Jacques
19 Centelles, Jacques De la Mediterranee aux Etangs et Marecage [Alan Davidson's copy]
Banyuls-sur-mer Published by the author 1981 Paperback Good Signed by Author
Illustrated, thick 8vo, pp 416, paperback, very slightly worn. [Presentation copy from the author. Alan Davidson's copy, with his "fishy" bookplate. One of the most important figures in twentieth century culinary writing and scholarship, Davidson was a British diplomat and historian best known for his writing and editing on food and gastronomy. He was the author of the 900-page, encyclopedic The Oxford Companion to Food. In 1948, Davidson joined the Foreign Office and served in diplomatic posts in Washington, Tunis, Brussels, Cairo, the Hague; from 1973 to 1975, he was ambassador to Laos. While living in Tunis, his wife asked him to look for a cookbook on fish because she did not recognize any of the local varieties. Not being able to find one he wrote one himself. The original manuscript was copied with a stencil machine. A copy reached the British cooking guru Elizabeth David, who passed it on to Penguin Books, which published it in 1972 as Mediterranean Seafood. This was followed by Seafood Of South East Asia (1979) and North Atlantic Seafood (1979), for which he travelled throughout the region, gathering thousands of recipes from Portugal to Iceland.]
