About this Item

On offer is a sensational, original 1902 manuscript book titled "Birds' Nests" handwritten by famed English ornithologist Charles Dixon. This 250 page book is a superb effort as to the depth of the subject matter and the regard held by the author who had the book specially bound by Zaehnsdorf of London, England obviously meant for his publisher as noted in the list of works listed below. Overall VG. WIKIPEDIA: Charles Dixon (1858-1926) was an English ornithologist, born in London. He discovered the St Kilda Wren and a new species in North Africa. He collaborated with Henry Seebohm on his great work on British Birds, in the second volume of which he summarized and modified A. R. Wallace's theory of the relation between nests and coloration of birds. Dixon made a special study of bird migration - especially in his book The Migration of Birds (new edition, 1897), an ingenious but overtheoretical work - and of geographical distribution of birds. Of his many books, the following may be mentioned: Rural Bird Life (1880); Evolution without Natural Selection (1885); Our Rarer Birds (1888); The Nests and Eggs of British Birds (1893; illustrated, 1894); British Sea Birds (1896); Lost and Vanishing Birds (1898); Game Birds and Wild Fowl of the British Islands (1899); Birds' Nests (1902); The Bird Life of London (1909). He is commemorated in the name of the Long-tailed Thrush Zoothera dixoni. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 0002064
