Hausman, Ph.D., Leon Augustus, Illustrated by: Abbott, Jacob Bates  
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of American Birds
 Picture
Publisher: Halcyon House, 1944 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED on title page by the author. First edition (stated). "At the present time there are between 13, 000 and 14, 000 species of living birds, and including subspecies of 'kinds' there are about 23, 000 altogether. Of these 1, 422 are found in North America, allocated to seventy-five families. Each of these 1, 422 birds, and each of the seventy-five families is treated in this Encyclopedia. The authority for the names and the individual numbers of the birds is the 'Check List of North American Birds, ' of the American Ornithologists' Union, referred to as the 'A.O.U. Check List'. The number assigned to each bird is known as the 'A.O.U. Number.'..The central purpose which has been kept steadily and uncloudedly in view in the preparation of this book, has been the answering of such questions as the writer's experience in many years of teaching beginning college students in ornithology, he has found are invariably asked, i.e. What does the bird look like? Is the female different from the male, and if so, what is this difference? How large is the bird? Where in North America does it live? What kind of countryside does it usually inhabit? What is the sound of its call? What are some of its characteristic or distinctive habits? For each bird information covering substantially these points has been included." Illustrated with sketches by Jacob Bates Abbott. xix + 541 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre. No dust jacket.

Pettingill, Eleanor Rice  
Penguin Summer: An Adventure With the Birds of the Falkland Islands
 Picture
Publisher: Clarkson N. Potter, Inc. , 1960 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Penguins are probably the most captivating birds anywhere, and the only place in the world where it is possible to live with both penguins and people is in the Falkland Islands. This British Crown Colony, three hundred miles off the tip of South America is where Mrs. Pettingill and her ornithologist husband went to observe and photograph the life cycle of the penguins from the time they come ashore to lay their eggs until their young, half grown, take to the water. Here is the story of how the birds shoot ashore from a romp in the water, how they waddle up steep paths to their nests high above the sea, how they brood their chicks and feed them. In short, all the details of their lives seen at first hand. Alternately placid and furious, awkward and dignified, the penguins never cease to be engaging. In addition to the comedy of penguin life, Mrs. Pettingill's narrative describes the hospitable people who lead cheerful, busy lives in their desolate outposts: a sheep farmer and his family, . sailors in perilous seas, robust and highly civilized dwellers in a primitive land. The Pettingills' adventures photographing gulls, albatrosses, and birds of prey compose a warm account that conveys the subtle, haunting lure of a stark, windswept landscape." Well illustrated with black-and-white photographs. 198 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket has small tear to top front edge; otherwise VERY GOOD condition.
