A Practical Handbook of British Birds

Nature volume 114, page 119 (26 July 1924) | Download Citation



THIS important work, which has been appearing in parts since 1919, is now cqmplete, and the corrections and additions in the last part bring the whole up-to-date. The bound book is available in alternative forms, and of these the thin paper edition makes two volumes of little more than pocket size. It is thus a handbook in a real sense, but at the same time the quality of its contents fully entitles it to a worthy place on the library shelf with larger works of reference.
