Excerpt from Field Ornithology: Comprising a Manual of Instruction Procuring, Preparing and Preserving Birds and a Check List of North American Birds

Since ascertained to inhabit North America, while one hundred and fifty have been removed from the former list as being extralimital, invalid or otherwise untenable. Of whatever part the author may have taken in remodelling the list, it would be Obviously indelicate to speak. But he cannot refrain from alluding to the Signal services Of reform rendered by Mr. Allen, Of Cambridge, whose stauch advocacy, under circum stances that might have excused fiinching, did so much to precipitate the changes, long while progressing and inevi table, for which the time was at length at hand. Nor would this allusion be entirely just, did he not in the same connection refer to the thorough revision now making by Prof. Baird him self, with the cooperation Of Dr. Brewer and Mr. Ridgway, the results Of which are about to appear in what promises to be one Of the greatest monuments ever erected to American ornithology. The notable concordance Of the several writings in question, an agreement the more gratifying because a short time since it might have been considered impossible, marks an important period in the history Of the science. The outlook promises well, when different premises lead up to the same conclusions, and conflicting views are reconciled.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 262 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Excerpt from Field Ornithology: Comprising a Manual of Instruction Procuring, Preparing and Preserving Birds and a Check List of North American BirdsBoth author and publisher of the Key to North American Birds intended that the work should contain instructions for collecting and preparing birds, and that a Check List, according with the authors views, should appear simultaneously with the volume. This proved impracticable: partly because the work so far overran the original estimates, that the additional expense and risk, which the publisher, an accomplished naturalist, generously offered to assume, seemed to the author unjustifiable; and partly because the writers unexpected call to another field of official duty suddenly threw such a pressure of other engagements upon his hands that he could not just then find time to write out even so slight a treatise as this. The Check List and Manual of Instruction are therefore now presented together, as a Supplement to the Key. The demand for a new Check List has become urgent. The last one published, and only one now in use, expresses a former state of American ornithology. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
