This is a book which belonged to my great-grandmother that I have enjoyed since childhood. I noticed the copyright had expired in the US, so I scanned it in so everyone can read it. The two-color gifs are small (under 10k) and should load very quickly even on a slow connection. I have transcribed the text as well, but it doesn't stand very well on its own; the special thing about the book is Woods' terrific rendering of the birds and plants.
Feel free to download the gifs to your own computer should you so desire. (To do this in Netscape on a Mac, move the mouse pointer over the image and hold the button down for a second or two - you will get a menu with the option to save the image to your disk. On a Windows machine, you can accomplish the same task by clicking with the right mouse button.)
