Title: The Cotingas: Bellbirds, Umbrellabirds and Allies
Description: London: British Museum (Natural History), 1982. First edition. Pp. 203, 22 full page color plates by Martin Woodcock. Publisher's original brown cloth, lettered in white on the spine, color pictorial dust jacket, 4to. This book monographs the family Cotingidae, some of the most spectacular birds of the American tropics - the 65 species of the bellbirds, umbrellabirds and related species. This family evolved in South America when it was an island continent isolated from all other land masses. This resulted in a diverse assemblage of species of some of the most brilliantly plumaged of all birds. No ownership marks and no signs of use. Tiny bump to top outer rear corner of cloth, a bright and clean copy in fine condition in a near fine dust jacket that is lightly sunned on the spine..
