A report on the collections made for the British Museum (Natural History).
In 1961, the fact that nowhere in the world was there a comprehensive collection of Australian birds with good biological data, Major Harold Hall, an Australian philanthropist interested in natural history, generously offered to finance a sufficient number of expeditions from the British Museum (Natural History) to make such a collection.
This volume reports on the expeditions and on the collections made.
