This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...which ascends to over 3,000 feet in Perth. I have Alectorolophus major Reichb. (=Rhinanthus major Ehrh. 1. c.) from East Ross, from Bodorgan, Anglesey, and with some doubt from Buckinghamshire. I found Alectorolophus borealis Sterneck in "Ann. du. Cons, et du Jard. Bot. de Geneve," 1899, p. 25 Rhinanthus borealis) at high elevations 2,200-3,000 feet on the mountains of Perth and Argyll, and noted at the time "a variety, but not Drummond-Hayi.' Alectorolophus monticola Sterneck ( = Rhinanthus monticold) I found on the Black Isle of Cromarty near the coast, and at Invercauld, South Aberdeen, at above 1,500 feet elevation. High-street, Oxford. REVIEWS. BRITISH BIRDS. A Hand-book of British Birds, showing the distribution of the resident and migratory species in the British Islands, with an index to the records of the rarer visitants. By J. E-Harting, F.L.S., F.Z.S., member of the British Ornithologists' Union. New and revised edition, with thirty-five coloured plates, carefully reproduced from original drawings by the late Professor Schlegel. London, 1901: John C. Nimmo. Pp. xxxi. + 520. Price 2 2s. net. The second edition of Mr. Harting's hand-book far surpasses the first edition both in size and general attractiveness. The number of pages has been trebled; and the addition of thirty-five coloured plates, representing the heads of 267 species, will make the book deservedly popular. The plates are beautifully executed, and contain nearly 500 figures--so as to show, where necessary, the distinction between old and young, male and female, and summer and winter plumage. For the matter, Mr. Harting's life-long services to zoology are a sufficient guarantee of its general trustworthiness, and render superfluous any more
