KIRKUS REVIEW

A book that will probably become the standard reference book on the subject of the American eagle. Sale probably by direct mail or special personal endorsement to those among your customers interested in bird lore. (With a secondary sale to numismatists.) Scientific, personal investigations over a period of years, with resultant valuable notes and fine photographs. Collection of stories and anecdotes about the eagle. History of the eagle as a symbol, from the earliest times to the present. Resume of its use on coins, particularly its use in the great seal of the United States.
