About This Item

Adelaide: RSSA, 1898. First Edition. Paperback. Fine. Adelaide, RSSA, 1898. Octavo, pages 125-192 plus a tipped-in errata slip with several minor references to this article. Wrappers slightly and uniformly tanned (acidic paper); a fine copy (uncirculated). Keartland's field notes make this far more interesting than the 'List of Birds' title suggests. For example, he concludes his account of the Nankeen kestrel thus: 'I took four eggs from a tree near our camp, and was surprised to find the nest lined with pellets of camel dung. This is probably the first time this material has been used for nest-lining'. Indeed. Other articles of more-or-less general interest include KOCH, Max: A List of Plants collected on Mount Lyndhurst Run (18 pages); BROWNE, J. Harris: Use of the Wedge by the Natives of the Great Barrier Plain (1 page); and the address by the president, W.L. Cleland (7 pages, essentially on the anthropology of Australia).
