Davis, William E., Walter E. Boles, Harry F. Recher (Editors.)

Nuttall Ornithological Club Memoir No. 22. The third of  four volumes on the history of Australasian ornithology, is an important contribution to the field.  This volume contains chapters on the history of Tasmanian ornithology, ornithological exploration of New Guinea,  avian paleontology, an autobiography of ornithologist James Allen Keast, and ornithology in the Top End of the Northern Territory.

Most of the chapters are written by people who participated in making the history they write about, and they bring to the accounts personal experience, an intimate knowledge of the subject matter, and rich anecdotal material that adds a distinctive character to descriptive and interpretive history.
