Melinda AllenInteresting just this morning I saw a book on a clients shelf called I think the "Wild Bee" I had to look. Love hearing and reading history of our area. It was a collection done by his wife after he died. He was a teacher in Mansfield and wrote a column for the News Journal on nature at their farm, back in the day when reading the paper was educational. Will look into this more and try to post it here. Thanks for sharing!

Happy birthday, Alexander Wilson (born July 6, 1766)! Wilson's "American Ornithology" (1808-1814) is the first American Bird Book with coloured plates published in America ow.ly/fGtZ301ZvJg Wilson is often regarded as the Father of American Ornithology. After moving to America from Scotland, Wilson worked as a schoolteacher, peddler, engraver, surveyor, and editor until at the age of 40, just seven years before he died of dysentery and exhaustion, Wilson left teaching and spent the rest of his life traveling over 10,000 miles observing and collecting birds, which he chronicled and illustrated in "American Ornithology." The publication included over 260 species, 48 of which were new to science, and was published in at least 10 editions over 70 years. The 1808-1814 edition, digitized in BHL by Smithsonian Libraries, consists of nine volumes. Wilson died during the preparation of the ninth volume, so it was completed by his friend and patron George Ord. The work contains 76 hand-coloured engravings by Alexander Lawson, J.G. Warnicke, G. Murray and Benjamin Tanner from original drawings by Wilson.
