1 Allaby, Michael A Year in the Life of a Field
Newton Abbot David and Charles 1981 0715378899 / 9780715378892 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. 208 pages with photographic illustrations in the text. The ecologist and naturalist author has written this closely observed account of a year during which he studied a perfectly ordinary eight and a half acre farm field. The field differs little from thousands of such fields, which is why he chose to study it. As part of a Cornish farm the field has been in the hands of the same family for two centuries and has seen the same cycle year in, year out. It is not a wild field untouched by human hand but has undoubtedly been affected by the attempts of several generations to wrest a living from it. His sensitive and personal study explores the history of the field and its surroundings, its flora and fauna.

Woods produced by the older management systems of various kinds can still be seen and some are listed here, and facts and forces that lead to the clearance of woods are considered, with useful ideas on how these may be changed; and more immediately, on how to save any wood in ones's own area that may be under threat. Profusely illustrated with photographs and drawings by Rosemary Wise. **** NOT EX LIB ****
