Nest and Eggs, Birds of the United States

Philadelphia 1882: J. A. Wagenseller. First Edition. Quarto. Item #022125

First published in origiinal monthly parts. The author felt there was a need for a book about birds which in turn gave the reader information on the birds habitats and their nest. 54 beautiful chromolithographic plates plus chromolithographic title page [Bennett p. 44]. While the contents mentions only 50 plates and the plates within the volume are numbered 50 there are actually 4 more plates. A handsome copy bound in 3/4 brown morocco over marbled paper covered baords, rasied bands with compartments lettered and decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, joints and spine ends with a bit of cosmetic repair, some tissue guards lacking as well as a portrait(?), internally clean without foxing to plates. Very nice.

Price: $550.00
