The Homes of the Birds. 63 Illustrations by Giacomelli.
Publisher: T. Nelson and Sons
Publish Date: 1886
Charming writing, delightful engravings, and tasteful binding. Nelson and Sons can do a thing well when they attempt it. This little book is bright as a humming bird, musical as a nightingale and yet as elevated in flight as an eagle. It has upon its pages the freshness of the upper air, and the joyousness of the woods in spring tide. It has been a great spiritual treat to read it and we could wish that all our readers who are devout naturalists might be able to procure a copy. We do not know the price, but we guess it will be half a crown or three shillings-very cheap, if so.
