STUDER, Jacob and JASPER, Theodore
STUDER'S POPULAR ORNITHOLOGY. THE BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA: DRAWN AND COLORED FROM LIFE and ORNITHOLOGY; OR, THE SCIENCE OF BIRDS. FROM THE TEXT OF DR. BREHM
Jacob H. Studer & Co., Columbus, OH, 1878. Two folio (11-3/4" x 15") volumes bound in publisher's half morocco leather with matching morocco corners. The first volume illustrated with 119 lovely chromolithographs drawn and colored from nature by Theodore Jasper; the second volume with 37 tinted lithographs. One of the best, as well as one of the last, great color-illustrated ornithologies. Later editions, especially the 1903 edition, have noticeably inferior quality plates. Contents fresh, one long closed tear to a text page in the second volume. Rubbing with some splitting to the leather along the spine edge of the front cover of the first volume but covers firm. Some loss of cloth to the second volume. Very Good with clean, bright plates [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
