Antiquarian - Kearton's Nature Pictures - Vol I & II - 1st Edition - 1910

£50.00

Product description

Beautiful first edition of the two volume Kearton's Nature Pictures. Text by Richard Kearton, photographs in photogravure, black and white and colour by Richard and Cherry Kearton.

Raised in the moorlands of Yorkshire, Richard and Cherry Kearton developed a boyhood fascination with nature that fostered their great desire to photograph it. Together the brothers invented ingenious camouflage "hides" (including one inside the belly of an ox) in order to get closer to their subjects of birds. After three years, the brothers published the first natural history book entirely illustrated with photographs; it changed the way people view birds and their nests, inspiring them to protect them rather than plunder them.

In very good condition apart from some rubbing and wear to boards. Foxing on page edges and inside front covers.

Dimensions: 12" x 9.25" x 1.5" (30.5 x 23.5 x 3.75 cm) Each Book

Heavy item over 2kg (3910g)
