Weight: 1.7kg. Post free within Malaysia, but, due to its weight, this book is likely to incur additional postal charges when posted outside Malaysia
Published by Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh, 1956. Revised and enlarged edition.
Condition: The cover has a little bit of wear and the gilt titling has lost its original brightness. The binding is good, the text is clear and there is mild to medium tanning throughout. The checklist from pages 435 to 476 has been marked with pencil ticks against certain species and there are occasional pencil annotations on these pages. There is also a small ink stain on one of the pages. There is a crack between two of the pages of plates at the end of the book, but this has not affected the binding.
