This revised edition of the late James Fisher's much praised Watching Birds is the work of Dr Jim Flegg, Director of the British Trust for Ornithology. In his Preface Dr Flegg writes: "It is a daunting task to revise the bird book on which you cut your teeth: it is the surest measure of the man who wrote it that what is needed, after thirty-odd years, is an updating and not a sweeping revision." Among James Fisher's deservedly popular writings Watching Birds was probably the most read and consulted. After several reprints (published by Penguin Books) he planned to re-write it, and it is wholly

The natural history of Selborne by Gilbert White( Book )

9 editions published between 1941 and 1960 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a compilation of 44 letters from White to zoologist Thomas Pennant, and 66 letters to Daines Barrington, a member of the Royal Society along with White. The original edition also included 26 letters on the antiquities, but it is his Natural History that has become an indispensable part of the Western Canon. White used these letters to document his meticulous observations of birds, plants and animals in the countryside around his home, at Selborne in Hampshire. He is often considered England’s first ecologist. This work is a classic not only for its value as an Enlightenment study of landscape and nature, but even more so for it being a great piece of literature, written in a style that is timeless, providing an atmosphere that is unmatched in its ability to pull the reader into the tranquil world around White’s home in the 18th century English countryside"--Books and Vines
