About this book

A facsimile of the first edition of 1837, with a biographical chapter and extentive notes by Martin Limbert. Robert Dunn was a taxidermist of Hull who made a number of expeditions to Orkney and Shetland to collect birds for stock, especially unusual species. In subsequent years, three of his sons lived there, ensuring continuity of supply. Dunn composed the book some years later, from notes taken on the spot. He included many observations of local life and natural history, although his main aim was to indicate the best locations for finding each species, with advice on how to most expeditiously shoot them.
