Alfred John North (1855-1917) was one of the greatest of all Australian ornithologists and a founding member in 1880 of the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria. In 1891 he was appointed Assistant Curator of Birds at the Australian Museum, under E. P. Ramsay, a position North 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 Wood p. 494-495; Zimmer 476-478.
