BY THE LATE

REV. RICHARD LUBBOCK, M.A.

AN APPENDIX CONTAINING NOTES ON HAWKING IN NORFOLK, BY

ALFRED NEWTON, M.A., F.R.S., ETC.,

"In addition to the intrinsic merits of the book, of which we can personally speak in the superlative degree as one of the most pleasantly written of the many pleasant natural history books our language is so rich in describing, as it does, the 'Broad District' a country unlike any other part of England, and a very paradise to the Botanist, Entomologist, and Ornithologist. This new edition is edited by Mr. Thomas Southwell, the active Secretary of the Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists' Society, whose full and accurate knowledge of the natural history of Norfolk better fits him for the task than any other man we know of." Science Gossip.

"The book in its original form is well known to naturalists, and it would be difficult to find another volume of its size which conveys in so agreeable a manner so much accurate and trustworthy information on the subject of which it treats. We promise to those who have never yet read this book a rare treat from its perusal." Zoologist.
