Notes
Content : Figures numbered 49 to 52. Printed on border: "Finally, as regards the shape of the head, though we have already conveyed that there should be a clear space between eye and beak-wattles, the whole should be so combined that the entire 'face,' measured from centre of the eye to point of beak, be as short as possible, with no perceptible indentation or 'stop' in the forehead, but the whole front of the head and upper mandible forming a kind of unbroken arch, or curve, into which the beak itself naturally falls, and thus terminates it. Having now described it point by point, we give in figs. 49 and 50 two views of such terminates it." Includes additional text.
