Sydney: Australian Museum, 1901-1914. Quarto, 25 egg plates. Rebound with the original titled spine, a few spots but otherwise an excellent well presented set.
A. J. North was one of the greatest of all Australian ornithologists. He was appointed Assistant Curator of Birds at the Australian Museum, under E. P. Ramsay, in 1891, a position he held until his death in 1917. His book is one of the great classics of ornithological literature, still useful, and a cornerstone of any collection of Australian natural history.
Whittell p. 552-563.
