The Birds of Borneo

Bertram E. Smythies


After the publication of his similarly comprehensive book on the birds of Burma, Smythies turned his attention to the birds of the island of Borneo and outlying islands. There is a full systematic list of the 554 species recorded until 1958 together with 50 colour plates illustrating 434 species.  There are special chapters by Tom Harrisson, Lord Medway and JD Freeman. Very Good Hard Back in a Good Dust Jacket. First Edition. 561 pages including a bibliography and separate indices of place names, Iban and Malay names and of English and Scientific names and a fold out colour map.

 Weight: 2 kg. Post free within Malaysia, but may incur additional charges when posted outside Malaysia


Condition: The dust jacket is tatty and torn, but in tact. There is a previous owner's personal ex libris stamp on a front end paper. The binding is tight and there is mild tanning throughout.

Published by Oliver & Boyd, London 1960,
