- ONE antique pocket book titled Bird Guide ( as shown)
Good-fair antique condition with overall wear consistent with age and use. The pages show discoloration and freckling. Front and back cover has been bent with use. The binding has separated from the pages, but most pages remain intact. The color plates showing birds in their habitat are clear and bright. Not bad for a book that is over 100 years old!
