Abstract

THERE is no branch of zoological science which offers so wide an appeal to human interests and so many avenues for the acquisition of new knowledge as the study of birds; and so it is with books about birds. At one end of the scale are the systematic, cataloguing, dry tomes devised for the use of the specialist and no other-matter without much life; at the opposite end are those volumes which place all their eggs in one basket, the photographs meant to catch the eye arid the pence of a Nature-loving public-life without much matter.
