A very nicely bound copy of a very uncommon work. Illustrations include distribution maps and dispersal diagrams. The plates show the tiny North Sea island of Mellum, birds, and nests. Friedrich Goethe (1911-2003) was director of the bird observatory at Heligoland. An excellent, clean and unmarked copy.
