Item Description: Clive Holloway. London. (1941) 1986 new edition. Large 8vo (141 x 222mm). Pp405,ad. Woodcut illustrations by Christopher Wormell, pictorial end-papers. Usual browning to pages. Good copy in rather scratched and shelf-worn dust-wrapper. This is a newly illustrated edition of this interesting account of Williamson's first two years as an amateur farmer in Norfolk, just before the outbreak of the Second World War. Williamson had until then lived in Devon, devoting his time to writing novels and vignettes of Devonshire country life. "After writing Tarka the Otter, Salar the Salmon, and a dozen other books set in Devon my father was mentally exhausted. . .He needed a new stimulus to continue writing and living." Since Williamson knew absolutely nothing about farming, he was letting himself in for a harder time than the one from which he was escaping. His other motive was that he saw the war coming "and was afraid for the future of his family. The time would come when imported food would be cut off. He alone would have to provide for them." In addition to that practical consideration, Williamson's time on the Western Front had given him a fascination for war, and so "he was drawn by the fascination and spectacle of conflict to live on that side of England nearest the crucible of European change." Awaiting the intellectual stimulation offered by Operation Sealion, he became "disenchanted with some local local people who spread the rumour that he was in league with Germany and said that [his] building of bridges and new roads was a preparation for invasion and even that the skylight tiles in his Studio were arranged in a special way so as to signal to Luftwaffe navigators." That said, when war broke out, Williamson thought that it was some kind of tragic error and was only stopped by friends from travelling to Germany to see Hitler in person, and Williamson opens his book with an 'inspiring' quote from Sir Oswald Mosley, Britain's leading nazi.

Slight use but very good in like dust-wrapper. "With contributions by G.V.T. Matthews and M.A. Ogilvie." "The Wildfowl Trust .has worked actively to promote wildfowl conservation over many years and this volume will surely be recognised as one of its finest achievements. Here in one volume [they] present a synthesis of detailed data, collected by a large number of enthusiasts, on the distribution of wildfowl and their major habitats. The importance of sensitive conservation planning is stressed as is the vulnerability of wetlands to modern technology. The international dimension of wildfowl conservation is also well covered, especially by the clear maps of ringing recoveries and migration routes." A great part of the very extensive text consists of a gazetteer of British wildfowl habitats with a discussion of each and data. This book remains a source of essential information, partly for the gazetteer of sites, and partly as a baseline with which to compare contemporary and future British wildfowl surveys.
