As described by
Fieldbook of Wild Birds and Their Music by F. Schuyler Mathews. This gorgeous tiny book is sized to fit in your pocket while you're out birding. Hardcover, 1908. Wonderful mix of fact (dozens of beautiful illustrations) and fancy (lyrics set to birdsong). Musical notations of the songs, very detailed observations of their themes and variations, or as the author says, "librettos." Extremely elegant and charming Edwardian book with gilt title and author.
