From Rothschild, Lionel Walter Rothschild, baron, 1868-1937 / Extinct birds.
An attempt to unite in one volume a short account of those birds which have become extinct in historical times
that is, within the last six or seven hundred years.
To which are added a few which still exist, but are on the verge of extinction (1907).

Scaled drawing illustrating the morphologies of the larger endemic Mascarene parrots.
A, Necropsittacus rodericanus (extremely large head and jaws, comparatively small body with long tail);
B, Lophopsittacus mauritianus (frontal crest, extremely large head and jaws, comparatively small body with long graduated tail, the two central tail feathers longer than the rest);
