The Birds of Iona and Mull, 1852-70

Excerpt from The Birds of Iona and Mull, 1852-70 When it was first proposed that the late Mr H. D. Graham's mss. Should be resuscitated and saved from oblivion, the present Editor had by that time devoted a large share of personal attention to the Natural History of the West of Scotland and the Isles. But as he was aware that Mr H. D. Graham's Notes and Letters were then under able editorship, and had been announced for publica tion, he considered his time and opportunities would be better bestowed upon other districts which were not receiving so much attention. Although a few occasions did permit of his visiting portions of Mull, and he kept a few notes of such facts as he met with, no special care was given to Mull until it became surely ascertained that the volume on Iona and Mull was not going to appear under the editorship of Mr Robert Gray; nor were any steps taken until after that gentleman's death to again communi cate with the family of Mr Graham regarding the Manuscripts and Sketches, of which latter the present Editor retained a vivid recollection, having seen them in Mr Gray's house in Glasgow.
