This is another bird book I found at Black dog Books.  It was a little pricey, but it is an antique bird guide used by a young woman in the 1890s.  There are sketched drawings of birds and descriptions of the habitat. The owner of the boom has penciled in sightings of each of the birds and the details of each,, including the date.  It is a very special record of a woman’s love of birds from a bygone age.  I love the cover of the book as well, with its ornate decorations.

Inside the flyleaf is this quote she wrote on pencil.  ” It is always morning somewhere, and above the awakening continents, from shore to shore, somewhere the birds are singing evermore.”

What a lovely thought.

Blessings to you,

Sarah
