Excerpt from Ornithology, Vol. 1 Attention is called to the style and execution of the illustrations of the present volume these are believed to have solved a difficult problem, namely, that of. Furnishing the means of identifying the species, without making the work very bulky and expensive. The plan here adopted of giving as far as possible life-size figures of the heads of each species, and small full-lengths of each genus, together with generic outline illustrations of the external anatomy, will, we trust, enable even the tyro to refer correctly to genus and species such specimens as may be collected, since the most characteristic parts will be found figured with scrupulous accuracy. Copies colored from nature, both as to the heads alone and the heads and full-lengths together, will be placed at the disposition of the public. The second volume of the ornithological series will be issued as soon as possible, the illustrations having been all drawn upon the wood, and a part of them already engraved. All the illustrations introduced are from nature, and, with few exceptions,ale prepared expressly for the present work. The full-length generic figures are by Mr. Edwin Sheppard of Philadelphia; the heads by Messrs. J. H. Rich ard and Henry W. Elliott; the generic outlines by Mr. A. Schonborn; the latter engraved by the peculiar process of Jewett, Chandler, Co., of Buffalo. The larger portion of the engraving of this volume has been done by, or under the supervision of, Mr. H. H. Nichols of Washington, and to his artistic skill and fidelity to nature the work is largely indebted for its value and attractiveness. A few excellent cuts have also been made by Mr. Henry Marsh of Cambridge. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
