Birds of the Bible - Gene Stratton-Porter (1916) - Biblical ornithology book
 
Gene Stratton-Porter, "Birds of the Bible" (originally published 1909; this edition London, Hodder and Stoughton, 1916). Hardback (grey cloth boards, black printed titles to spine and birds motif to front), 206pp, measuring approximately 11.5 x 18.2 x 2.2cm (4.55 x 7.15 x 0.85in). In this scarce book on the theme of Biblical ornithology, the American authoress best known for "A Girl of the Limberlost" (also 1909) writes about various birds mentioned in the Bible, including the dove, eagle and ostrich.
 
No dustjacket; the cover is much discoloured and marked with browning to the spine together with considerable age wear including holes in the cloth of the spine hinges and bumping to the edges and corners; the front flyleaf (the first two pages in terms of pagination) is missing, whilst the pre-title page bears an original pencil inscription dated 1916; the pages (and likewise the inside covers and rear endpaper) are discoloured with tanning to the edges, occasional foxing and other marks together with occasional creases and some edge and corner wear; the binding is weak, and there is a small amount of old insect attack to one corner of the inside back cover, the rear flyleaf and the last two pages (not affecting the text).
