Studer, Jacob Henry, 1840-1904. / Birds of North America
(1903)

Announcement



ANNOUNCEMENT.
To disseminate and promote natural science information as well as to gratify
a universal taste, the undersigned take
pleasure in placing before the public, under its auspices, a work containing
artistically colored illustrations of over seven
hundred different species of birds, comprising most all that are known to
exist on this Continent, including Mexico and
Central America, accompanied by a copious text giving a popular account of
their habits and characteristics, and embracing
in general the observations made by the most eminent writers on Ornithology.
The original drawings for the work were made from nature, by THEODORE JASPER,
A. M., M. D., an Artist of
superior capabilities, who has made Ornithology a life-study. Revised by
JOHN GRAHAM BELL, EsQ., Audubon's com-
panion in the field, and a well known Ornithologist and Taxidermist. The
Systematic Table, arranged according to the
classification adopted by THE AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGISTS' UNION, which was prepared
by FRANK M. CHAPMAN, ESQ.
Assistant Ornithologist at THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY, New York,
includes all the additions
and corrections of our NORTH AMERICAN SPECIES which have been made to date,
with an Index, to page, plate, and figure,
of each species according to the A. 0. U. Number.
There is no more attractive study than Ornithology, the department of zoology
which treats of the structure, habits,
and classification of birds. The graceful forms, movements, and habits of
the feathered tribes have been celebrated in all
ages by poets and artists, and have furnished the instructors of mankind
with lessons of wisdom. But this admiration is
not confined to the poet, the artist, or the sage; it is universal. Wherever
human beings are found, the forms, the
plumage, the songs, the migrations, the loves and contests of birds awaken
curiosity and wonder. No similar work, con-
taining so many beautiful and faithful pictures of living birds, and so much
descriptive and scientific information, is now
extant, or has ever been published in this or any other country.
The work is an Imperial quarto volume, and is sold to subscribers, handsomely
and substantially bound at prices as
follows:-In full Turkey Morocco, Russia, or Seal, Gold gilt edges, $45.00;
Half Turkey Morocco, Russia, or Seal, Gold
gilt edges, $40.00; Cloth, uncut. Gold top, $40.00.
