Michael Joseph    London. 1980 New Edn, 8vo. Illust. 164p. D/J.

This book captures some of the magic of the tideways, the shapes and colours of the clouds, the effects of light on the marshes and sea, and patterns of the flighting fowl, D/J has some rubbing and prelims have some browning. -Very Good.
