Set of 2 Collective Nouns Books

The Bodleian Library
Entertaining collections: over 100 collective nouns for animals and birds, each charmingly illustrated with woodcuts by Thomas Bewick (1753-1828). Drawn from sources across the collection of the Library, from 15th century hunting terms to imaginative expressions from the modern-day. A Barrel of Monkeys: over a 100 examples. Some describe a key characteristic of the animal in question: 'a shrewdness of apes', 'a busyness of ferrets'. Others are delightfully humorous: 'a piddle of puppies', 'a crash of rhinoceroses'. Featuring pets, farmyard animals, big cats and wild beasts. A Conspiracy Of Ravens: featuring songbirds, aquatic birds, birds of prey and garden favourites. Over 100 examples, from 'a murder of crows', 'a charm of goldfinches', 'an ostentation of peacocks' to 'a murmuration of starlings' and 'a crown of kingfishers'.
