Description

First published in 1923, this book deals with the various endangered and recently-extinct birds of contemporary Britain. “Rare, Vanishing and Lost British Birds” is profusely illustrated and contains interesting historical information, detailed descriptions, anecdotes, and other notable information relating to the birds treated. Highly recommended for those with an interest in ornithology. Contents include: “Pelican, Pelicanus Onocrotalus”, “Crane, Grus Cinerea”, “White Spoonbill, Platalea Leucorodia”, “Capercaillie, Tetrao Urogallus”, “Avocet, Recurvirostra Avocetta”, “Great Bustard, Otis Tarda”, “Black-Tailed Godwit, Limosa Belgica”, “Great Auk, Alca Impennis”, “Goshawk, Astur Palumbarius”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on ornithology.
