Title A history of the birds of Ceylon : Volume 1-3
Author Captain William Vincent Legge
About the Author Tasmanian-born William Vincent Legge (1841-1918), soldier and scientist, was stationed in Ceylon from 1868 to 1877, when the material for this important work was gathered. After his return to Tasmania in 1883, he retained a strong interest in natural history, being a founder and president of the Australasian Ornithologists’ Union. Provenance: Thomas Littleton Powys, 4th Baron Lilford (1833-1896), British aristocrat and ornithologist, one of the original subscribers (with his crest stamped in gilt at the foot of each spine); with the later pictorial bookplate of ornithological author Peter Tate in each volume.
About the Book The first major work on the birds of Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, was A History of the Birds of Ceylon by Australian Captain Vincent Legge in 1878. He concluded then that there were 47 endemic species of birds in this country.
