This book has just been published and I have my copy since today. If you are interested in the history of Japanese animal art this book is a must have. But unfortunately some animals like the Toki (Japanese Crested Ibis) or the wolve are not included.

Not quite the same as 'will be publishing' ...
Thanks.

That's gone up from £39 the original offer, to £48 already.

Even though I already have the original Wildguides 'British Birds' book I've preordered this pocket version which is out at the beginning of August. Much more handy to take out in the field than the heavier larger version https://www.nhbs.com/british-birds-a...ildguides-book

It looks like an excellent photo-guide for the beginner. As for myself, I was hoping that they might do a version to cover Europe even at the cost of omitting some extreme extra-limital rarities. As I recall this was even hinted at back when the original appeared...

I am curious whether this book will also include photographes of rare speces like Beck's petrel or the Pincoya storm petrel. It was initially planned that Hadoram Shirihai published a similar book titled FG Seabirds of the World in late August but it seems that he won't publish this book this year. Hopefully the Howell/Zufelt book will be a good surrogate or even better though Shirihai's Tubenoses Project is still interesting.

My understanding is that it should include all or at least most birds of the world, including most/all mega rarities / little known species, though I've not seen it. Hopefully there will be multiple high quality photos of these species, and good text to accompany.

Also looking forward to Shirihai's book, when/if it should ever see light of day.

My copy of the 4th edition of 'Where to Watch Birds in Southern & Western Spain' arrived last week. As to be expected, it's a case of evolution rather than revolution, The high standard has been maintained and there are some new sites mentioned and many updates. I always recommend getting the most recent version of any site guide as things do change and just one snippet of updated information can make or break a day out birding. Personally, I thought that the best bit was the intro ..... but that's because Ernest Garcia had some very kind words about my website on Cadiz Province

On Melanies tombstone it will say 'I'm curious what will be included in this'.....

Every time a new book is mentioned, the question is what will or won't be included.......

Must be West Indies, as the other ones are still being offered with advance discount. For West Indies, they say "Hot off the press". Have not received my announcement yet.

Thanks Robert, I'd concluded that myself.

Further to my previous comments regarding the frequency with which Lynx might produce their new titles and bearing in mind that three titles are due almost together, can this be classed as 'pumping out'? (Chris )

The new book arrived today and now, having the three titles so far produced in this series which promises to end up at a fairly impressive size, I now have a dilemma!

How do I organise these books, do I keep them together as an attractive set or place each individual volume in the appropriate, geographical spot on the shelf........

Being you, of course you bought two copies, one for each placement

What a good idea!!

I do sometimes buy two, I buy a hardcover, where available, to retain as a good reference copy and a paperback for field use.

I meant unpublished Chris, waiting in the wings as it were.
No. If you check, you should see that text is bang up-to-date, i.e. May 2019 for West Indies. None of this has been waiting in the wings. It is all freshly-prepared text based on current knowledge, prepared through (depending on each author) fieldwork, museum research, and extensive consultation of published bibliography and online resources, as well as input from local experts. That's not to say that there will be errors and omissions, as with any endeavour. As a conservationist, there seems to me little point in wasting resources by rehashing already existing information.
