A wonderful collection of Fenwick Lansdowne's ornithological artwork depicting the birds of Canada. This collection was originally published in Macleans magazine in April 1957. The colours are vibrant and the images beautifully detailed.
Lansdowne was a much celebrated and lauded Canadian artist who painted and illustrated birds. He never had a formal art lesson and despite being struck by polio since infancy, he mastered his craft and was the leading contemporary wildlife artist of his time. A brief biography is included in the collection.
Note damage on the cover due to a sticker having been removed by previous owner. Otherwise, in good vintage condition with slight yellowing on edges.
