Letter to James Cossar Ewart from [N.] Bassett, 19 April 1929

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/35/5

Scope and Contents

Bassett asks Ewart where he can trace the authority for Ewart's assertion in his 1920 lecture that the only bird in the world to have the rudiments of teeth in its mouth was 'Springops' [sic] the New Zealand parrot. He has examined 20 stuffed specimens in the Christchurch Museum but the mouths were not well preserved enough.
