About This Item

London: The Linnean Society of London, 1898. First edition.

1898 SCARCE MONOGRAPH ON OWL ANATOMY WITH FINE COLLOTYPE AND LITHOGRAPHIC PLATES.

12 inches tall hardbound, recent blue paper covered boards, blue cloth spine, paper title label to cover, Part I--Pterylography, pp 223-2751 collotype and 5 lithographic plates; Part II--Osteology, pp 1-46, 2 lithographic plates, unmarked and very good.

WILLIAM PLANE PYCRAFT (1868 – 1942) was an English osteologist and zoologist. He became a keen observer of all living things, but devoted himself specially to birds. After leaving school, he desired to follow natural history as a profession, and started as a private pupil with the curator of the Leicester Museum, where he learned the art of preserving and preparing animals for study and exhibition. In 1892 he was introduced to Prof, (afterwards Sir) Ray Lankester, who invited him to be his assistant in making preparations for the Oxford University Museum.
