-----------approx. 11 1/4" x 14 1/2", titled Fenwick Lansdowne, A new album of bird paintings, contains 6 loose pages which are the same size as the portfolio. All of the art reproduced is taken from MacLean's magazine (a Canadian mag). The introductory essay has the latest date as 1957 in reference to his biography but my feeling is that this is slightly later (the only thing that might help pinpoint an actual date is a refernce to his paintings "now selling for one hundred dollars" ( I'll take 6, please). The condition of the portfolio itself is Good with some wear and tear and curling to the corners of the cover/folder and the leaves, a few small spots on some of the leaves, --- this contains 4 full size sheets depicting the Pelagic Cormorants, the Surf Scoter, a Skylark, the American Goldfinch, as well there are two pages with half page illos of the Great Blue Heron, the Semipalmated Plover, the Rufous Humming Bird, and the Northern Shrike, front panel shows the Red-Shafted Flicker, rear panel shows the Northwestern Crow, according to WorldCat this 2nd portfolio was issued with illustrations taken from the 1957 issue of Maclean's magazine, the 1st portfolio had 7 leaves ---this portfolio was issued with 6 leaves so is complete, scarce, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
