Guide. Liberty Bell Bird Club. Washington Square Philadelphia. [cover title]

Promotional guide for bird watching urging the preservation of the habitat of birds who “...alone can keep in check the ravages of insects.”


Guide book and advertising prospectus for the Liberty Bell Bird Club. The club was sponsored by The Farm Journal magazine whose founder and editor, Wilmer Atkinson, served as club president. Because it was the club’s official magazine, a subscription to it was promoted by inserting a sample leaf with club news into the guide book. The guide suggests club meeting plans, bird-friendly plants, and species-specific bird houses.
