OF

BRITISH ORNITHOLOGY;

IN TWO SERIES, VIZ.

1.-LAND BIRDS. II.-WATER BIRDS.

[ocr errors]

In this Work, Figures, for the most part of the size of Life, will be given of all the British Birds, from Drawings by the Author, taken, in every possible instance, from Living Speciinens. The Engravings will also be executed by the Author, assisted occasionally by Captain R. MITFORD, R. N. Each Part or Number will be accompanied by a temporary Letter-press in Quarto, giving a short Description of each Plate; but to render the Work more complete, an Octavo volume, not only Descriptive of the Plates, but so arranged as to serve as a Manual of British Ornithology, will be given at the conclusion of each Series.

The First Series, already published, consists of Seven Parts, containing upwards of 160 Figures, and comprising all the British Land Birds, down to the Order Grallatores, (with the exception of one or two Species recently discovered, and which

will be afterwards figured); also an 8vo. vol. of Letter-press, Price 10s. 6d., systematically arranged, and to be had with or without the Plates.

SECOND SERIES.-WATER BIRDS.

The First Part of the Second Series, which will embrace the Water Birds of Britain, is just published; it contains the following Birds, all of the natural size :-Plate Ist, Ardea Nycticorax; 2d, Ibis Falcinellus; 3d, Scolopax Rusticola, Scolopax Major, Scol. Gallinago, Young and Old, and Scol. Gallinula; 4th, Tringa Subarquata, Summer and Winter Plumage; Tringa Variabilis, Summer, Winter, and Young Plumage ; and Tringa Maritima; 5th, Rallus Aquaticus; 6th, Gallinula Chloropus; 7th, Anser Albifrons; 8th, Anas Penelope, Male and Female ; 9th, Querquedula Crecca, Male and Female; 10th, Querquedula Glocitans, Male; 1lth, Somateria Mollissima, Eider, Male ; 12th, Colymbus Arcticus, Male.

In consequence of the remarkable changes of Plumage to which so many of the Waders and Water Birds are subject at different periods of the year, as well as in their progress to maturity, (accurate delineations of which are necessary to render the Work complete, and truly illustrative of our Ornithology ;) the Second Series is likely to exceed the limits of the First; it is however expected not to extend beyond Nine Parts.
