Solid hardcover.; "In offering this little volume to the public, I have endeavored to describe and give the history of only those species of birds of the United States that I have myself collected and mounted, and whose nests and eggs I have located and gathered. In the forty years that I have been occupied in making my several collections, the habits of the birds I include in my notes have become very familiar to me, and having been among them at all seasons of the year, the brief accounts I present for the benefit of the ornithologist and collector can be relied upon as accurate." - Preface. ; Ex-Library; xi, 84 pages.
