Lot #41/28 The birds of Africa 7 volumes edited by Leslie H. Brown, Emil K. Urban, Kenneth Newman, Stuart Keith, C. Hilary Fry. The standard work on birds of the continent. A complete set of seven volumes (although a supplementary volume on birds of African islands - Malagasy region - was also published). Each volume is large & heavy, containing about 600 or sometimes more pages & over 30 colour plates each. More than 200 colour plates by Martin Woodcock. The lowest price I can find on the internet for the seven volumes is $490.00 (about R7000.00) excluding delivery charges. Export on these heavy volumes out of Africa would be excessive, enquire for local delivery charge. A great opportunity to purchase what is in essence a complete set. London, Academic Press [Princeton, Princeton University], 1982 - 2004. First editions. 4to. Cloth. Dust jackets. Various paginations. Colour plates, drawings, maps. Some dust jacket spines slightly sunned, rubbed, a few small blemishes, some foxed on reverse, first few volumes a bit foxed, names on end-papers of two volumes. Overall good+ to VG. Reserve price: R4800.00 bids welcome
