Dear librarian,
I would like to find the book I once have seen in some collection but never have find in any bookstore or e-directory. That is an album of birds with text and pictures (beautiful drawings) of brothers von Wright. It could be printed in 1980-ies or early 90-ies. Could you, please, tell me the full name of the book and if there is any place in Finland were I could order it. Thank you in advance.

The fith edition (year 2000) is on sale in bookstores. Here are some adresses to bookstores which you can contact by Internet:

Or may be you mean this book:

Linnut / veljekset von Wright. Tammi, Helsinki, 1993. ISBN 951-31-0157-6. It is much larger book, 534 pages, with drawings of brothers von Wright. It is available in Helsinki City Library, but only as a reference book in Main Library.
