Book Description | Table of Contents


"It is impossible to not be impressed by the spacious design and almost opulent feel to this tome. All paintings are by Martin Woodcock: a stunning achievement, with 312 species illustrated by 676 portraits on 32 plates. The texts are comprehensive, but not overpowering. It is providing us with one of the great sets of reference handbooks devoted to a single continent. This is an essential purchase for every serious ornithological library. With the recently formed and thriving African Bird Club, there will also be many birdwatchers who will want to own their personal set of volumes."--J.T.R. Sharrock
