According to Sacheverell Sitwell’s Fine Bird Books, George Edward’s A Natural History of Uncommon Birds was, on the date of its issue, “one of the most important of all Bird Books, both as a Fine Bird Book and a work of Ornithology,” and still remains “high on each list.” It was first published in four volumes between 1743 and 1751. Three supplementary volumes, titled Gleanings of Natural History, were issued in 1758, 1760, and 1764. Taken together, the two works contained engravings and descriptions of over 600 subjects not previously described or delineated. Edwards has since become known as the “father of British ornithology.”
