Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1996. Hardcover. This is a unique copy of this publication. It is inscribed by Chandler and Blom to a contributor on the team: "Many thanks for your many hours of hard work on this Atlas, Bob!" This appears to be Robert Franklin Ringler (the name Ringler is handwritten on the front end paper), who passed away in 2022. According to his obituary, Ringler joined the Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) in 1975 and served as President from 1988-1989. He was also a member and President of the Baltimore Bird Club and the Carroll County Bird Club. He is considered to be one of the founders of the Breeding Bird Atlas Project, from which this book emanated. The book is also inscribed by a member of the Editorial Board, and several others who were apparently members of the project. The Atlas provides data on 199 species that breed in Maryland and DC.
