Birds in Books

May 22 – August, 2014
Flat Library Cases


The variety and beauty of birds represented in books is amazing. From the well-thumbed bird guide to Thomas Bewick’s The History of British Birds, these feathered, winged, two-legged, warm-blooded egg-laying vertebrates are illustrated in every conceivable way. Selections from the library’s special collections will be on display showing both the oddities and beauties of this class of animal.
