Excerpt from The Naturalist's Library, Vol. 14: Ornithology Gallinaceous Birds

Before proceeding, however, to give an analysis of his writings, it will be proper to relate What has been recorded of his life and character. Several of his own countrymen discharged the friendly task due; to his genius, by becoming his biographers; but' their memoirs, except a few fragments, have perish-i ed in the general wreck of antiquity. Whatever is1 now known concerning this remarkable man, must be gleaned from the meagre and often contradictory notices to be found in the pages of Diogenes Laer tins, Dionysius Halicarnassus, Hesychius the Mi lesian, Suidas, Ammonias, and a few others of more' doubtful authenticity. Modern writers have not thrown much additional light on the subject, and their efforts have accomplished little more than at) tempting to reconcile what is discordant, or rejecting what is improbable, in the statements of the ancients.
