About this book

The value of egg collections as a scientific resource is illustrated by the enthusiasm displayed by museum curators to accomodate collections of specimens when they become available. The first edition of "The Egg Collectors of Great Britain and Ireland" profiled important egg collectors no longer with us.

This second edition updates the former, and adheres to the same format. Additional information and newly acquired photographs of a number of egg collectors have been obtained in the meantime and are included in this edition.
