The author writes in the forward(written in 1906):
"Scotland is, perhaps, the only part of the British Isles where the term wild life has much meaning."
And goes on...
"Rare forms have passed out of existence, others are passing . Our land is poorer than she was, and richer than she will be. Against this depletion I strive with all my might."
There are chapters on Wild Cats, Golf Links & wild life, The Tweed & The Northern Isles amongst others.
With 17 black & white photographic Illustrations.
This beautiful book is still in fine condition and tightly bound.
The Red cover boards do have some fading and rubbing as well as some corner bumps but are still very attractive with gilt image of fox with cubs on the front board and gilt spine titles.
The inside pages remain bright and clean with usual tanning for a book of this age and with some random small spotting throughout. The attractiveness of the book is enhanced by Gilt page edging along the top.
