[8] pp 9-191 Scarce first edition of J A Baker's compelling study of the peregrine falcon in unusually nice condition. The book is near fine, just a little spine lean, with clean and complete text, a neat ownership signature on the first endpaper. The jacket, designed by Charles Raymond, is very good, lightly sunned to the spine but retaining good colour to the front panel; not price clipped, a closed tear down 4cm at the top of the hinge between spine and lower panel which has been closed with archival tape on the verso of the jacket. As Robert Macfarlane puts it 'Baker's extraordinary book is an elegy in part for the peregrines, and in part for the landscape through which he and they both moved.' Such was the author's regard for his subject, and his own privacy, that in place of the customary authorial photo there is a picture of a peregrine on the rear flap of the jacket.
