Translated from the German by Phillis Barclay-Smith. "In this book a general ornithology is given, which sums up and concentrates on what applies to all species...as a guide, you are given a simple survey of the commonest types of birds' nests, and a compliation of the best-known bird songs. The sketches and tables will help you to become acquainted with the various species of birds, while the principal part of the book seeks to interpret the nature of the bird...The sketches have been given their traditional function because they supplement the written word more effectively than the true-to-nature photograph and give the author a better means of bringing out important points by emphasizing one thing or omitting another. " The Chapters: Bird migration; Reproduction; Structure and function of the bird's body; Classification; The ancestry of birds; Extinct and vanishing birds....Index. Hundreds of drawings.
