"The principal part of the general text is based on Gould's Monograph of the Ramphastidae, 1833-1835, of which it is, in places, a literal translation; but considerable of the matter is rewritten or revised and there are additional species described herein for the first time. The plates are sometimes redrawn and reduced from Gould, but frequently altered or designed afresh, while the illustrations of the new species are entirely new."--Ayer Library catalog.
