Eight years in production, this monumental study of the pheasants of eastern Asia ranks among the greatest ornithological landmarks. Nearly 100 species, many endangered, are described: blood partridges, tragopans, cared-pheasants, golden pheasants, peafowl, argus pheasants, jungle fowl, many more. Detailed data includes adult characteristics, plumage, songs, courtship, battles, nests and eggs, ecological niche, other topics.

Ninety glorious full-color plates by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, H. Gronvold, C. R. Knight, other noted wildlife artists capture the striking beauty of these magnificent fowl. Also included are numerous photos of the birds' habitats; 20 maps showing distribution of the birds; feather diagrams and many other illustrations. Republished here in two volumes (originally four), and reproduced directly from a rare original edition, A Monograph of the Pheasants belongs in the library of every ornithologist or serious bird lover.
