William MacGillivray became Scotland's foremost 19th century ornithologist, and was a close friend of John James Audubon. His five volume A History of British Birds was one of the most careful and detailed descriptions of British birds ever published, yet it never received the credit it deserved. This is an account of the man's life and work, and includes a previously unpublished selection of his illustrations.
