Media reviews

"[...] If you’re interested in ornithological history, books, and/or art, then you should enjoy Extraordinary Birds: Essays and Plates of Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library. It’s not a perfect set, but an interesting book plus 40 prints for $50 (or less) is a great deal."
– Grant McCreary (18-01-2014), read the full review at The Birder's Library
