Protected Native Birds of South Australia

Adelaide, R.E.E. Rogers, Government Printer, 1910.

Octavo, [ii], 30 pages plus 12 full-page chromolithographs (by Alfred Vaughan after drawings by C. Wall).

Overlapping card wrappers a little sunned, creased and worn with a few small chips to the edges along the edges; two ownership inscriptions on the title page and one on the rear wrapper; a very good copy.

A Special Bulletin issued by the South Australian Department of Intelligence. 'The purpose of this book is not to catalogue or to scientifically describe our native birds; but to bring prominently before the public, the police, and others in authority, and more especially the children in our State, those of our protected native birds that most often fall victims to thoughtless boys and sportsmen'. A small slip is tipped onto page 5, noting the names of six more birds added to the protected list since the page was printed.
