The Dodo and Its Kindred or The History, Affinities, and Osteology and Other Extinct Birds

1848 ; 201 Pages

"This seminal 1848 monograph sets out to separate the myth from reality regarding perhaps the world's most famous extinct bird. The book was borne from a dissection of the dried out head of the last remaining stuffed Dodo, carried out by Strickland and Melville in the mid 19th century."
