Birds of the Estuary, C. F. Tunnicliffe
C. F. Tunnicliffe (1901-1979) was one of the great British naturalist illustrators. He specialised in birds, wildlife and the countryside.
This Puffin Picture Book (number 90) shows some of his work at its best. Fully illustrated in colour and black and white.
The text was edited by Noel Carrington, the originator of Puffin Books.
Published by Penguin Books in 1952. A softcover book in very good condition. A very slight mark on the back cover. Front cover and inside pages are clean and bright.
Much of Charles Tunnicliffe’s work was bequeathed to the Oriel Ynys Mon (The Angelsey Gallery) in Wales.
