Daniel Smith (1806-1852) was a clergyman in the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was ordained in 1831 and became very active in Sunday School work and in temperance work, lecturing extensively on the later. He was also the author of more than fifty books for young people. His Natural History series consisted of up to 11 volumes and covered everything from timber trees to fruit, insects, and birds.

Contents: this volume covers 68 varieties of birds, which are described and illustrated, from the Baya and Bull Finch to the Wryneck and Yellowhammer. (The missing four pages contained the Redstart, some text for the Summer Yellow Warbler and the picture and a bit of text for the Crossbill.)
