A lovely copy of a scarce volume that is less a book than a work of art. Roland Clark's matchless drypoints, printed from the plates on fine watermarked deckle edge paper, are luminous--one doesn't have to be a devotee of wildfowling to appreciate their artistry. If one is a devotee, this book is profoundly satisfying. Frazier acknowledges this: “One of the most beautiful of the Derrydale Press books”.

Inscribed by the author on the half title “For R— P— H—, Jr., Nov. 15, 1937”.
