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.
