Anyway, this time I found these great "little" field guides. I say "little" because they are only 3.5'' tall by 5.5'' wide. I love the artwork and the descriptions are wonderfully subjective. For example, when discussing the rose-breasted grosbeak the author states," Almost all observers are impressed with the wholesomeness of this grosbeak. It is seldom nervous and does not permit trivial things to bother it."
This is is dated 1931 and printed in Racine, Wisconsin.
This one was printed in Bavaria and didn't have a date .
This may be the start of a new collection! (George sighs and thinks, "At least they're not breakable and they fit into the back of the car.")
