Great English ornithologist, artist and writer, son of Robert Falcon Scott (“Scott of the Antarctic”).

Scott used television to popularise natural history and wrote and illustrated a number of books on the subject. His lasting legacy is the Severn Wild Fowl Trust at Slimbridge, which he founded in 1948.

This is the title page (8.5" x 5") of a copy of his 1961 autobiography,  The Eye of the Wind, signed, inscribde and dated ("Inscribed for Richard Bordon by Peter Scott, 22 June 1961") in blue fountain pen ink. A little toned around the edges and a couple of marks, but in  good overall condition.
