First Edition Quarto (8-1/2" x 11-1/2") bound in later library buckram with gilt numbers and lettering on the spine, a blindstamp on the title page, and an ink stamp on the top edge of the bulked text as well as a small ink stamp on the bottom margin of the last page of text; bar code and pocket removal on the later rear free endpaper. There are no other library markings. Illustrated with a detailed chromolithographic title page and 54 gorgeous chromolithographs of birds and their nests with eggs, nearly all protected with a tissue guard. Bennett (p. 44): "Drawings done chiefly by Mr. Edwin Sheppard of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, acknowledged as the best ornithological artist in America." A likely later issue of this title as the date does not appear on the title page as it has on nearly all of the other copies we have handled. Binding is sturdy if not attractive. Contents are bright and fresh. Near Fine (Item ID: 014390)
