Beebe, Director of Tropical Research of the New York Zoological Society at the time of the publication of this book, records his experiences during an extraordinary journey of just over two and a half years to document pheasants in the East. He travelled through the Himalayas to present day Indonesia, Malaya, Sarawak, Burma, China and Japan in the first decade of the 20th century. The account is less a scientific record of pheasant species, but rather a travel diary recording his experiences and the peoples he met. Very Good Hardback. First Edition. 248 pages with an index and many black and white plates.
