A portfolio of paintings and drawings of the talented New Zealand bird artist Raymond Ching. With over a hundred plates, nearly forty of which are in full color. Per the jacket flap, ". . .Ching's amazing draughtsmanship is still his single most admirable feature: his ability to capture the 'birdishness' of a bird still makes the most immediate impact". The art is described by Raymond Ching, with additional text by Errol Fuller. --- This hefty work in full blue cloth-covered boards with gilt-stamped spine titling. Volume protected in blue cloth-covered slipcase, which in turn is wrapped in colorful dust wrapper. The wrapper bears color images by Ching to both front and back. --- A clean, bright, tightly-bound copy but with minor soiling to cloth. Slipcase with some whitish spots of soiling. Dust jacket intact and bright but with some minor rubbing & shallow creases.
