"This is, without any exception, tbe roost truly charming work on Ornithology which has hitherto appeared, from the days of Willughby downwards. Other authors describe, Mudie paints; other authors give the husk, Mudie the kernel. We most heartily concur with the opinion expressed of this work by Leigh Hunt (a kindred spirit) in the first few numbers of his right pleasant London Journal. The descriptions of Hewick, Pennant, Lewin, Montagu, and even Wilson, will not for an instant stand comparison with the spirit-stirring emanations of Mudie's 'living pen/ as it has well been called. We are not acquainted with any author who so felicitously unites beauty of style with strength and nerve of expression—be does not specify, he paints."—Wood's Ornithological Guide.
"The ' Feathered Tribes' is indeed an Exquisite Work, and unquestionably the best that has yet appeared on the habits of our native birds, in that it is scarcely second to those of Wilson and Audubon. Mudie is the most accurate observer of nature,—Selby excepted, and be treats not exclusively of habits— consequently tbe 'Feathered Tribes' deserves a distinguished place on the shelves of the philosophic ornithologist."—Ornithologist's Text Booh.

"American Ornithology has uniformly presented a highly interesting subject of investigation to Naturalists aud liberally educated persons of all countries, even when llie means of notifying their curiosity were few and difficult of attainment. Wilson's invaluable work removed the obstacles to this attractive study, and conferred on him an imperishable renown. His ardent and perspicacious mind enabled him to exhibit the troths he discovered, in that warm, lucid, and captivating language, whieh never falls to reach the heart ol his reader; while the faithfulness of his delineations shew most advantageously the accoracy of his pencil.— We may say, without hesitation, that such a work as he has pnbliahed in a new country, is still a desideratum in any part of Europe."
"The valuable Notes and interesting Life of Wilson added to this new edition are from the pen of Sir William Jardine, a Naturalist of congenial mind in feeling and talent. The plates are well executed, and the greatest possible attention has been paid to accuracy of colouring. Altogether we have rarely seen a more valuable work on Natural History, and not one more entertaining."—Lit. Gazette.
