Descrition: The last of Elliott's great ornithological monographs. Zimmer calls it 'a comprehensive treatment of the entire family of hornbills', a genus between the Kingfishers and the Hoopoes, inhabiting the Ethiopian, Oriental and Australian regions. 'The formidable bill ... formidable in appearance only, as it is mainly hollow and permeated with a network of boney fibres,' was a peculiarity that interested Elliot. Another characteristic, unusual in birds, was 'the possession of long and strong eyelashes....' The family is arranged into two divisions, the ground- and tree-hornbills, the first consisting of just three species and the last over fifty in number. Plate 44 although included on the plate list was never issued.
