A REVIEW of the first edition of this useful handbook to the birds of India was published in NATURE of October 6, 1928, p. 533. The book is very good value for its price, which perhaps explains why the first edition was so quickly exhausted. In that edition, 250 common Indian birds were described; in the second edition, 275 are described at length. A new feature is the brief mention with short descriptions of a further 230 species. The requisite number of extra illustrations have been added. The whole text has been revised and brought up to date.
