Warriors, dilettantes and businessmen - Bird collectors during the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries in Southern Africa... Warriors, dilettantes and businessmen - Bird collectors during the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries in Southern Africa (Paperback)
W.R.J. Dean 1
R295 R234 Discovery Miles 2 340 Save R61 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

This book focuses on the activities of all the people who collected bird specimens in southern Africa, and their contribution to the science of southern African ornithology. In addition to the collectors, it covers some of the history and the development of ornithology as a science in southern Africa. Dr Richard Dean draws particular attention to the fact that the southern African region is blessed with an exceptionally rich bird fauna involving over 900 taxa. It is often difficult to identify closely related species in the field and this is why it has been so important to build up extensive collections of preserved bird skins and of eggs in natural history museums in various parts of the country and elsewhere in the world. The book explains how the collectors of these specimens were active in selling or donating them to museums or they were collected by dedicated people with a passionate interest in the birds themselves. Particular attention was given to the period between 1850 and 1950 when museum collections were growing intensively, and were being used. These bird collections have been used by several authors to provide material for books on birds during this period – E.L. Layard, A.C. Stark and W.L. Sclater, V. FitzSimons and E.L. Gill, to name a few. A major user of bird collections in southern Africa was Austin Roberts, who compiled the first edition of the Birds of South Africa (First Edition 1940), extracting much of the original information for the descriptions from bird material that he had personally collected for the Transvaal Museum collection (now Ditsong National Museum of Natural History). Another major user of the bird collections was Dr P.A. Clancey, who used the collection at the Durban Natural Science Museum to describe and name a large number of subspecies of birds, as well as publishing books on birds. The writing of this book on the collectors of South African birds was made possible by the author’s life-long preoccupation with the natural history of birds.

Welsh Surnames (Paperback, UK ed.): T.J. Morgan, Prys Morgan Welsh Surnames (Paperback, UK ed.)
T.J. Morgan, Prys Morgan
R358 Discovery Miles 3 580 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Welsh Surnames is the first full-scale study of Welsh surnames and is both a classification and a dictionary. Based on Welsh, Latin and English texts, on parish registers and local histories, it traces the growth of a Welsh surnaming pattern in Wales and the Border at the end of the Middle Ages. This historical picture is completed by evidence taken from modern sources such as electoral registers from Wales and western England, surnames from Welsh and London newspapers, and telephone directories. The book opens with a classification of the various kinds of Welsh surnames besides the innumerable examples of the well-known Welsh patronymic surname; surnames from hypocoristic forms, from anglicisations and approximations of Welsh names, from the forenames of women, from place-names, and many others. This is followed by a dictionary of Welsh surnames which also gives attention to variations and corruptions of the original names. Welsh Surnames is aimed both at the specialist and the general reader as an invaluable tool not only for the historian or the genealogist but also the geographer and sociologist.

The video game industry has evolved. What was at first hobbyists working in their spare time in school labs or converted garages has grown into veteran specialists working in high-rise offices and multimillion-dollar studios. Some of these professionals came from those early days of video game development, but many emerged from other disciplines, including traditional game design, art, software programming, film animation, screenwriting, engineering, music production, and many more. Each of them brought along their own language--a collection of terms and definitions relevant to their field--which filtered in and out of the industry as they did. Games continued to change and so did the way we talked about them. Confusion inevitably arose as each discipline had, up until then, been largely independent and therefore had its own unique vocabulary. For example, what was known as "value" by an artist would have been called "brightness" by a programmer (to whom value meant something else entirely). "Theme" had a different meaning to a game designer than it did to a writer. A common language had not, and still has not, developed; yet in order for the members of any multidisciplinary venture to communicate efficiently, it must. THE GAME DEVELOPER'S DICTIONARY is the first attempt to collect the terms and phrases used within all avenues of game development, and define them, with hundreds of definitions covering game art, design, programming, production, writing, and sound. Terms are categorized alphabetically and by discipline so that entries can be accessed quickly and easily. The book emphasizes creating an understanding between the game development disciplines - great care has been exercised to define terms in ways that someone outside the related area of expertise can easily grasp. A survey of game industry job titles and their descriptions is also included.
