There were postings recently concerning field guides to birds.
Being too old and infirm for overseas travel I didn't read the postings.
However the following may be of interest to some b-aus subscribers.
I have before me a catalogue, the front cover of which reads:
Natural History & Ornithology
Incorporating: Christopher Helm, T & D Poyser, Pica Press
The three names said to be incorporated don't mean anything to me, and I
haven't attempted to access the net site.
I have attempted to tally the number of bird books listed in the catalogue -
presumably all in print. Allow for errors in my counting, but at least it
will give the general picture:
A total of 189 bird books.
And this includes 41 "Field Guides to the birds of ...", and 26 "Where
to watch birds in ..."
I would hope that the net site would give full details.
(If interested and all else fails, email me privately and I'll give you
details of the book shop that sent me the catalogue).
