I'm clearing out 90 boxes of books of all kinds as we settle my father's estate. There used to be an LDBWS library held at Leighton Moss. I'm not sure if it is still curated. I have three titles of historical interest to offer if it does, are they of interest.... ? I have enough stuff to sort out and these are library quality. Other similar titles as yet unsorted.

Birds in Flight WP Pycraft illustrated by Rowland Green, London Gay and Hancock Ltd First Edition 1922 . Bound colour plates protected with tissue, also B&W plates.

An Illustrated Manual of British Birds, Howard Saunders, London, Gurney and Jackson with 384 illustrations and 3 coloured maps, 2nd Edition, revised and enlarged, 1899

British Birds by WH Hudson CMZS , New edition 1897, with a chapter on structure and classification by Frank E Beddard FRS (illustrated)

Longmans Green & Co London New York and Bombay

interested to see if these titles have any interest still in the modern age...

We spent a lot of time sorting the LDBWS library and merging it with RSPB stuff. It is in the meeting room at Leighton, you access it through the back door and office.

Anything which is just for disposal could go on the sales shelf in the cafe.
