A Bush Calendar (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Bush Calendar"A Bush Calendar" was commenced with the idea of sharing with other bush lovers the pleasures which I myself have found in my walks, and it appeared originally on the Page for Women of the "Sydney Morning Herald," As the seasons advanced letters of encouragement were received from many readers who "knew their Bush" and from some who admittedly had not found the key which unlocks the book of Nature; and it is at the request of many of these unknown friends that the articles are reprinted. Although the book is not intended to be a complete scientific record, the lists of flowers and birds most in prominence each momh have been so greatly extended that they may clam to be fairly representative of the coastal districts around Sydney.My thanks are due to the proprietors of the "Sydney Morning Herald" for permission to reprint; to Mr. R. Hale for the cover design; to Mr. F. W. McLean for photographs of gully path and sunlit bracken; to Mr. A. Read for photograph of kookaburra; to Mr. J. Ramsay for photographs of yellow robins, fantail, jacky winter, mopokes, kingfisher's nest, young honey-eaters, lambert wren, and black-caps; to my husband for the remaining bird photographs and some of the flowers; and to Mr.S. W. Bacon for his personal interest in the engraving of the illustrations.The native rose, eriostemon, dwarf apple, rock lilies, banksia are from Kerry & Co.'s copyright photographs.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
