Publisher's announcement and letter laid-in. From publisher's description: A masterpiece of ornithological artistry and scholarship, describing extensively all of suriname's birds (668 species), many of which are likely to be found in the neighbouring countries. This makes the book useful for all of the Guianas and will enable observers to identify most of the birds of the adjacent regions. This book is a completely rewritten, and enlarged edition of Haverschmidt's earlier work. The text gives special attention to such field marks as identification, habitat, nesting and ranges. Also included are family descriptions, breeding data, and references. The introductory chapters cover subjects such as topography, climate, ornithological research in Suriname, a review of the avifauna, migrants visiting Suriname, nomenclature, and nature conservation and management in Suriname. Four indexes: english, scientific, local and french bird names, and an extensive bibliography complete this work. This important scientific documentation will be indispensable for ornithologists studying South American species. The book contains 46 colour plates depicting 443 species. Each of the masterfull plates, made by Paul Barruel and Inge van Noortwijk, has a facing page containing reference information. The descriptions in the text are further supported by 78 paragraphs, as well as 153 line drawings. A folded, lare format, full colour map of Suriname completes this exceptional work.
