ALI, SÁLIM AND S. DILLON RIPLEY
A Pictorial Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent
(Bombay, Bombay Natural History Society/Oxford University Press, 1989 Second Impression). . With 106 plates depicting all the birds by John Henry Dick. 4to; blue boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper, a little creased; pp. (iv) + 177 including index; colour endpaper map; 106 plates, 73 in colour. Very good condition. "This Pictorial Guide is unique in that it depicts all the bird species found in the Subcontinent arranged family-wise on 106 plates which follow one another in systematic order and are thus easy to find. The excellent illustrations, moreover, have the advantage of consistency in quality, all being the work of a single artist, the well known American bird painter John Henry Dick. They make supplemental verbal descriptions of the birds redundant, but concise information concerning status, size, habitat and distribution within subcontinental limits has been provided.".

ANDERSON, MARK D.
Birds of the Orange River Estuary and Surrounding Area
(Cape Town: Avian Demography Unit / Kimberley: Northern Cape Department of Tourism, Environment and Conservation, 2006) 0799223069. . 210 x 148 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (iv) + 92; line drawings; map. Scuffs to upper cover and to tail of spine. Good condition. "The Orange River, the lifeblood of the Northern Cape, flows into the sea at this corner of our country. Its shallow waters and adjacent habitats provide important feeding, roosting and breeding habitat for a variety of waterbirds, especially considering that there are virtually no estuaries or river mouths along literally hundreds of kilometres of coastline on either side of the estuary. The importance of the Orange River estuary was identified several years ago and the wetland was consequently designated as a Ramsar Site, the only such wetland in the Northern Cape.".

BAILEY, ALFRED M.
Dusky and Swallow-Tailed Gulls of the Galapagos Islands
(Denver Museum of Natural History, Museum Pictorial No. 15, January 20, 1961). . 229 x 152mm; saddle-stitched pictorial wraps; "Lammergeyer" bookplate of Jack Vincent inside front cover; pp. 32; map; black-and-white photographs. Very good condition. "During July and August 1960, seven members of the Denver Museum of Natural History field party worked among the volcanic islands of the Galapagos Archipelago, which straddles the equator some six hundred miles in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of Ecuador. When doing field work on the various islands, two species of endemic gulls were noted commonly, and there were many opportunities to observe and photograph them. The nesting of the Swallow-tailed Gull (Creagrus furcatus) has been reported upon by Gifford (1913), R. C. Murphy (1936) and others, but the nest and eggs of the Galapagos Dusky Gull (Larus fuliginosus) were unknown at the time of the Denver Museum expedition, although naturalists since the time of Darwin have speculated upon the nesting and searched for the eggs of this common species. I was fortunate enough to find a nest, and this short article is devoted to a brief resumé of the literature available to me and to an account of our observations of both species of these endemic gulls.".

BANKO, WINSTON E.
The Trumpeter Swan. Its History, Habits, and Population in the United States
(Washington, U. S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, 1963). . North American Fauna, Number 63. 228 x 148mm; card wraps, somewhat sunned and worn; Jack Vincent's "Lammergeyer" bookplate inside front cover; author's presentation inscription on title page reads: "To Colonel Jack Vincent with sincere admiration for his work with endangered birds of the world. Winston Banko Hawaii Nat'l Park Hawaii June 17, 1967"; pp. x + 214, incl. index; profusely illustrated with tables, graphs, line drawings, black-and-white photographs. "The appeal of swans to man throughout history has come down to us in legend, custom and in many forms of art. That the world's largest species of this storied bird should have become nearly extinct in its native North America was thus especially tragic. The continuing recovery in numbers of this beautiful and graceful symbol of American wilderness is a major accomplishment in wildlife preservation.".

Most of the best birdwatching localities occur in the province's many nature reserves, although the parks, gardens and sewage disposal plants of the cities also attract a wealth of birdlife. This guide is intended as an introduction to the better birdwatching localities in the province... The localities have been grouped into five sections: In and around Durban; In and around Pietermaritzburg; North Coast; South Coast; Remainder of KwaZulu-Natal.".
