Birds : the art of ornithology by Jonathan Elphick( Book )
20 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 619 libraries worldwide
"This book tells the story of the development of ornithological art through the ages. It ranges from the early decorative - but often fanciful - images of birds, through more accurate portrayals resulting from exploration and an increasing knowledge of the world's avifauna, to modern attempts at capturing the essence of these, the freest of all creatures." "Birds contains a selection of images from the collection of London's Natural History Museum, some of which have never been reproduced before, and includes exquisitely crafted works from some of the most famous natural-history artists. The text interweaves ornithological information with accounts of the lives of the artists, details of the development of the techniques they used and a critical appraisal of their achievements."--BOOK JACKET
Birds and people by Mark Cocker( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 510 libraries worldwide
"Part natural history and part cultural study, this book describes and maps the entire spectrum of human engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics, and the environment. Vast in both scope and scale, it draws upon Mark Cocker's 40 years of observing and thinking about birds to celebrate this relationship. The book is as important for its visual riches as it is for its groundbreaking content, as one of Europe's best wildlife photographers has traveled in 39 countries on seven continents to produce a breathtaking and unique collection of photographs. The author solicited contributions from people worldwide, and personal anecdotes and stories have come from more than 600 individuals of 81 different nationalities, ranging from university academics to Mongolian eagle hunters, and from Amerindian shamans to highly celebrated writers. The sheer multitude of voices in this global chorus means that it is both a source book on why we cherish birds and a powerful testament to their importance for all humanity"--Amazon.com, viewed October 9, 2013
