The Natural History of the Birds of Ireland, indigenous and migratory
By Watters, John J.
Pp. xv, 299, (1, errata). Publisher’s original dark green ribbed cloth, ornately stamped in blind on the upper and lower covers and on the spine, lettered in gilt on the spine, 12mo (6.75 x 4.5 inches; 170 x 114 mm). This is a scarce early review of the Irish avifauna covering descriptions, habits, migrations, occurrences and economy of 261 species. This volume was first owned by Henry Fisher and was brought by him from Ireland to the U.S.A. Fisher later passed the book to his grandson, Fisher Heckmott Joy, in July 1910; their ownership history is recorded on the half-title page. The final owner was William M. Tomlinson with his attractive color bookplate on the front pastedown. For more information, see Zimmer/Ayer 666, Wood/McGill 621, Ripley/Yale 307 and Trinity College 252.
