Little Folks in Feathers and Fur and Others in Neither.
by MILLER, Olive Thorne [Harriet Mann Miller] (1831-1918).
New York:: E. P. Dutton, 1891., 1891. 8vo. 357, [XI] pp. Profusely illustrated with charming engravings. Black- and gilt-stamped brown cloth. Good. "To begin with — Dear unknown Reader, — this book makes no pretensions to be a scientific work. Indeed it is scrupulously otherwise. Long words are carefully left out, nothing is said of scientific classification, and very little of scientific names. It is merely a collection of sketches, telling what is interesting for any-one to know, about a few of the millions of creatures on our globe." – Olive Thorne Miller, from the preface. Olive Thorne Miller was a pseudonym of Harriet Mann Miller, a naturalist and ornithologist who contributed extensively to the journal of the Audubon Society.
