I know I know, we are not supposed to advertise on this net, but I have had a book come into my possession which I think may be of interest to people with an in interest in the more historical side of ornithology.


It is a 1950 edition of “ An Australian Bird Book” by Dr J.A. Leach, published by Whitcombe & Tombs of Melbourne. This is presumably the Leach after which Leach’s Storm-Petrel was named (?).


The book of 200 pages has a foreword ( memoirs) about Dr Leach by Charles Barrett before going into Leach’s descriptions and pictures of Australia’s birds which contain many variants in common names and species classification.


Any offers ?  Contact me privately please.
