Description

‘Birds of Saurashtra, India’, by Raol Shri Dharmakumarsinhji, is a large, detailed treatise published by the author in Saurashtra and printed at the Times of India Press, Bombay. The book is undated but was likely published in the mid-20th century, and was, according to Major-General H. Williams’ Foreword, the first authoritative record of the birds of Saurashtra. Fifty-three pages of prefatory matter are followed by 561 pages of text, including “Additional Notes on the Birds of Kutch and Gujerat”.  The text is supplemented by more than a dozen maps and 51 plates of illustrations- many of them in colour. The book is approximately 8.5 inches wide, 11.6 inches tall, and 1.8 inches thick.
The book is in good condition. The dustjacket is absent. Boards are bumped and rubbed, with bent corners as well as fraying and minor tears to the corners, spine ends, and edges. The binding is solid, with the gilt titling still bright. Page edges exhibit stains. Internally the book is in very good condition. An owner’s stamp appears on the pastedowns, the title page, and the last index page. There is some minor staining to the front pastedown and some internal pages, but overall the text is in great condition, with no tears, scribbles, bends, or other major defects.
