BIRDS IN THEIR SEASONS. By J.A. Owen.

1904 1st English edition. 8vo (157 x 234mm). Ppviii,145 + 4pp ads. Colour plates by A.F. Lydon. Green cloth, upper board titled in red, spine titled in gilt.

Descriptions of British birds, arranged by the season during which they are most likely to be found. Attractively illustrated with twelve full-page colour plates by A.F. Lydon. A scarce book. "This little volume does not aim at giving a full scientific acquaintance with our British birds; for that the student must have recourse to the various excellent manuals and works by such ornithologists as Dr. Bowdler Sharpe, Mr. Howard Saunders and Lieut.-Colonel L. Howard Irby. ...I give the Latin names of each species, and many of the local names. The orders and families will be found in the index. Our illustrations give the forms and colouring. The nesting habits of the birds and some of their call and song notes will also be found here; and all is arranged, so far as possible, in seasonal method rather than in the scientific sequence".
