In recognition of the complete order of Ornithology, the nineteenth century naturalist's collection would contain at least one Oology; a collection or study of eggs. Henry Seebohm's Eggs of British Birds are among the finest. Organized by type; Shorebird, Songbird, Gamebird or Bird of Prey, and systematically arranged by size, these original chromolithographs are richly printed from multiple stones, allowing for a subtle variation of color and texture not commonly found in many egg prints of this period. Historical text documentation accompanies the plate. (Wood 561). Near Fine Condition. Light foxing to paper edges, not effecting the image. Item #6634

Price: $75.00
