Vintage Book, Vintage Childrens Bird Book, Golden Adventure Book, 1950s, Natural History Book, William Jerr is a wonderful book for any child or adult that has a lot of questions and curiosity about birds. When I was a child I was going to be an ornithologist after I read this book. I loved it but now that my shelves are bulging with my bird books and other nature guides I thought it was time to let this one go. I hope its new owner loves it as much as I did.

This large format paper bound book is about 8 x 10" and is in fair condition. It was well loved but the binding is strong. Pages have age related discoloration and the front and back covers both have some minor dings and damage. Inside the pages are in good shape and this sweet book is packed with black and white illustration as well as a small color plate section.

William A. Jerr was a well known ornithologist with the National Audubon Society and it was his passion to help children become interested in birds and conservation. There is real scientific information in this book, though some things are a bit dated. Research has given us even more answers but it is a good place to start and is written so that most children will have no trouble reading or understanding it. Not only does it address the biology, natural history and conservation of birds but it also talks about how a child can take notes and add to the field of study as well.

This will make a great addition to any vintage collection of bird books, children's books or Golden Adventure Books. You can see more of my wonderful vintage books here in my shop

I ship the day after I receive payment and this book will ship with media mail.
