“It is admitted by every ornithologist that New Guinea and the
Papuan Islands have the finest birds in creation--the Paradiseidæ,
which have many different decorations, and must be seen in the
drawings to understand their forms.

“ There are also the finest Parrots, Kingfishers, and Pittas; some of each are figured in every part.”—J. Gould. 678 GRAHAM (H. D.). The Birds of IonA and Mull, edited by J. A. HARVIEBrown. Sq. roy. 8vo., with illustrations by the Author; cloth

“Dr. Sclater and Mr. Hudson have combined their forces to produce one of the
best books ever written on South American Ornithology. Each is a master of bis own
portion of the subject, for no one is better nted with Neotropical Ornithology
than Dr. SCLATER, and Mr. Hudson has been known for many years as one of the best
living observers of the habits of birds in the field. The scheme of the book, therefore,
leaves nothing to be desired, and the whole of the get-up,' as regards paper, print, and
illustrations, renders it as good as it is possible to be, and reflects the greatest credit on

the publisher.”Nature.

Sheffield, 1896
“ Taken as a whole, Seebohm’s is decidedly the finest work on British oology that has
yet been published, especially as it contains figures of the eggs of many species which
were unknown in the days of Hewetson. It will be very acceptable to the numerous
collectors of eggs, to many of whom the earlier work-with its nearly two thousand
pages of letterpress-would be an encumbrance; there are barely three hundred pages

in the present."-Athenæum, August 7th, 1897.

“Mr. Henry Sharp is an old hand, and he has written this book, the first from his
pen, with twenty years' experience to back him. Undoubtedly Mr. Henry Sharp
understands everything he writes about; but his strongest point is a thorough knowledge
of guns, particularly of punt guns, of punts, ammunition, and shooting paraphernalia
* Practical Wildfos

useful book that will interest all persons
interested in this particular branch of shooting. The drawings, by the author's brother,
are well-executed and life-like, and the work contains a good index.”—The Sketch.
