Key List of Tasmanian Birds

  • Collection
  • n.d.

Key List of Tasmanian Birds, with a method for their easy identification by Parker and Morton.
Typed draft of a' pamphlet' bound and interleaved with blank pages and corrected in ink. - eg the addition of 'By Parker and. Morton' under the title and. the alteration of 'I' to 'we' and: 'procured by myself' to
'procured by Capt. Parker R.N.' in the preface. The 'key' is described in the preface as 'meant for those who are not up in scientific terms'. 'The Systematic List of Tasmanian Birds' by Colonel W.V. Legge (1841-1918) was followed and so the 'Key' was probably compiled between 1900-1907 by Capt. Arthur Charles Parker (c1860-1920) and Alexander Morton (c1854-1920) secretary of the Royal Society of Tasmania
