Meadeville, PA: Published for the Meadville Bird and Tree Club, the Presque Isle Audubon Society, Sam Wharram Nature Club, Pymatuning Group of Federated Bird Clubs, 1958-1973. Hardcover. 4 volumes, 11 x 8.5 inches, bound in red buckram, stamped in gilt on spines, bookplates of Leberman. The newsletters are printed in purple mimeo (sometimes called dittoes) on rectos, illustrated, an invaluable survey of ornithology in western Pennsylvania, and each volume is a few hundred pages. Rarely found in commerce and only a handful of complete sets (this set is complete) in institutions, including the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Very good, but with some foxing and mustiness, as this was kept at the Powdermill Nature Preserve in Rector, PA, where Leberman lived. Born in 1937, Leberman died in March 2020. From his obituary.Born and raised in Meadville, Leberman developed a deep interest in birds during his childhood. As a young adult his interest grew stronger and in 1958 he began to band birds on his own. Three years later he moved to Powdermill Nature Reserve in Ligonier Valley to establish the bird banding program there. In the years following, he became a senior research scientist at Carnegie Museum of Natural History and one of the most adept songbird banders in the US. He was able to expertly identifying as well as determine age and gender of countless birds. His expertise also called him to Central America to study North American migrant birds. In 1976 he published a detailed book on the area birds for Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Practically self taught, Bob's childhood hobby became his lifelong profession. Very Good. Item #H16152
