British Birds on Lake, River and Stream (John Gould) by Phyllis Barclay-Smith
King Penguin number K1. First edition published November 1939.
Overlapping boards. [Note: the first six King Penguins were published with either overlapping boards (like a normal hardback book) or with flush cut thick card covers.]
No dustwrapper (as published). [Note: the first editions of King Penguins up to K46 (1948) did not have dustwrappers. When (if) they were reprinted after 1948 they had wrappers.]

Free end papers (fep) foxed on both sides. Text pages and illustrations clean.
