About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for My Scrap Book: Or rough notes on Indian Zoology and Ornithology by Hume, Allan Octavian.

Description:

Pp. x, 422, 32, 10, 12. Early black simulated snake-skin leather, lettered in gilt on the spine and with upper and lower gilt panel lines, 8vo. A. O. Hume was an ornithologist and botanist who worked in British India. A notable ornithologist, Hume has been called "the Father of Indian Ornithology" and, by those who found him dogmatic, "the Pope of Indian ornithology." 'My Scrap Book' was Hume's first major work on birds; in it he provides species accounts for 81 species. 'My Scrap Book' was dedicated to Edward Blyth and Dr. Thomas C. Jerdon who, he wrote [had] done more for Indian Ornithology than all other modern observers put together and he described himself as their friend and pupil (modified after Wiki). Bound in at the rear of this rare work are three additional smaller titles: 'Index of English Names of Birds in Jerdon's Birds of India' by R. G. Oxenham (Bombay: Education Societies Press, 1870, 32 pages); 'Additional Observations regarding some species of birds noticed by Mr. W. T. Blanford, in his ornithological notes from Southern, Western and Central India' by Allan O. Hume (Calcutta: Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, volume 39, part II, 1872, 10 pages); 'Some of the familiar birds of India' by H. J. Bruce (Philadelphia: American Naturalist, volume 6, August 1872, 12 pages). No ownership marks. Light text browning to a few pages of the text of 'My Scrap Book,' foxing to the first page of 'Index of English Names of Birds in Jerdon's Birds of India' and to a few pages in the other two small titles, the attractive simulated snake skin leather binding shows just a touch of wear; a tight copy in very good condition.

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1896 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing.
