Synopsis
Dust jacket notes: "Ninety-two full page illustrations, unsurpassed in brilliancy and accuracy of color, make this a volume without a rival among popular bird books. The plates are reproductions of water color paintings by the leading bird artists of North America, and to insure perfect accuracy they were also checked against actual bird skins. Two hundred and ninety-five species, 561 major figures, are shown in the plates. Thus most of the birds common to the North American continent east of the Rocky Mountains are included. A unique feature of the illustrations is the range of plumages presented - male and female, immature and seasonal. See, for example, Plates 78 and 79. Doctor Roberts has contributed a brief description of each bird depicted, giving its size and distinguishing marks, its range, its most interesting habits, the type and location of its nest, and the color of its eggs. His introduction explains the few technical terms used and the index includes the popular names in common use in various parts of the country and the official and scientific names as well. Everybody's Bird Book might well be the title of this collection of bird portraits. As a picture book for the youngest members of the family, a guide for boys and girls in school and in camp, an aid to teachers and recreation leaders, and a companion to bird lovers everywhere, it will prove an endless source of inspiration and delight." Hardcover, beige cloth with red titles and illustration, 8.75 x 11.25 inches, unpaginated (Index cites plate numbers, not page numbers), full-color, 92 full-page illustrations numbered from 1-90 (also including #8 1/2 and #46 1/2).
