Rowland Ward Publications Wanted
Background: I have been compiling information on publications by Rowland Ward Ltd. for a period of over ten years in order to do a thorough, comprehensive bibliography of the books by this famous London publisher and taxidermist. Since I deal in antiquarian books as well as being a publisher, I have owned almost all Rowland Ward publications. Below are those that still elude me and would like to purchase. Please quote any you may have for sale.
1- Bailey L.H.: Studies with Pen and Camera of our Wild birds, Animals, Fishes & Insects. (1902 Double Day, New York) This portfolio of 40 pages and 15 plates may also have been issued by Rowland Ward Ltd in London.
