8vo, V, 256pp. Hardcover with green cloth boards scuffed at edges with bright green non price-clipped d/w in fine condition, now protected in clear archival covering, text in excellent condition devoid of any extraneous writing or markings making this volume in excellent condition (near fine) overall. This is number 58 in The New Naturalist Series concerned with A Survey of British Natural History. The importance of the hedge-row to the ecology of the British countryside can’t be understated . All aspects of hedgerows in Britain are covered in this very readable work that includes 39 b/w plates, 56 text figures and 20 authorative tables and has only minor light toning to page edges and front and rear endpapers. More a historical and ecological reference than a treatise on hedge maintenance or growth.
