The Natural History of Horses.The Equidae or Genus Equus of Authors.
W H LIZARS, EDINBURGH 1841 - A very good copy of the 1st edition of Horses (Mammalia Vol XII) from Jardine's Naturalist's Library in the original publisher's cloth binding. With volume listing; black and white frontispiece of Gesner; black and white vignette title page; 2 further title pages; Publisher's advert (noting that this volume was produced 'early' - Marsupials had been due to be the next volume published); Memoir of Gesner; Introduction with black and white illustrations; text including synopsis and memorandum; and 32 plates bound at the rear. Of these 29 are hand coloured - the other 3 are a copy of a bas relief, a skeletal view, and a muscular view. The cloth binding is in very good condition having been expertly rebacked to retain the original spine. The spine and board edges are lightly sunned and there is a small identation on the side edge of the front board. The original green endpapers are present - with repair. There is a decorative bookplate of Francis Hemming, the noted entomologist, to the front pastedown. Contents in very good clean condition with just the occasional light mark. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
