A monograph of the lories, or brush-tongued parrots, composing the family Loriidae.
St. George Jackson Mivart.
This was published by R. H. Porter (London) in 1896. There were sixty-one plates in quarto.
Lories are parrots distinguished in that order, Psittaciformes, by their having a brush-tipped tongue for which they use to extract nectar.
They are mainly found in New Guinea and the Lesser Sunda Islands (east of the Wallace line), though some occur in Australia, islands in the Pacific, Tasmania, and the Philippines.
More recently, a facsimile edition of the plates was published in Germany by Seibersbach.
This exhibit of Loriidae is featured on three webpages, with links provided at the bottom of each page to access the next page.
