Up for bid is The Burgess Bird Book for Children by Thornton W. Burgess. Illustrated by Loius Agassiz Fuertes, published by Little, Brown and Company, Boston. The copyright date is 1919, with a 'W' under it. While not a first printing, this copy appears to be an early printing of the First Edition. There are 353 pages.
This hardback book is in good condition - with some discoloration noted on the cover. The blue fabric is faded on the spine, probably by sunlight. The spine is now a light brown color with brown spots noted. There is minimal fading on the front and back covers with more original blue colored fabric closer to the front edges, away from the spine. There is a small 1 and 3/4 inch tear on the page opposite from the title page. It shows on the top right hand corner of the picture across from the title page. Other than these, the book is in very good condition with the spine being tight and intact, very minimal yellowing of the pages and the color illustrations are beautiful and vibrant for their age.
Besides this, the stories themselves are a delight!
