The Handbook of the Birds of the World is the first work ever to illustrate and deal in detail with all the living species of birds - Material in each volume is grouped by families, with an introductory text on general aspects of the group, generously illustrated with colour photographs, followed by individual species accounts and their accompanying colour plates illustrating all species, including all significant sexual and subspecific differences, of all of the families covered - All volumes also contain a foreword on a particular ornithological theme.
