The Natural History of the Nectariniadae, or Sun-Birds.
Edinburgh: W H Lizars, 1843 A good copy of the 1st edition of Sun-Birds from Jardine's Naturalists' Library in the original brown cloth binding. With hand-coloured vignette title page and 30 hand-coloured plates at the rear. Sun-Birds is one of the scarcer titles in the series. The binding has been rebacked, relaying the original spine, so it is sound and tight. There is slight fading to edges and some corner bumping, but overall the binding is in very good condition. New endpapers. Contents: volume listing; frontispiece portrait of Willoughby; vignette title page; 2 further title pages; advert; contents; text and 30 plates at the rear. There is no plate numbered 28, but there are 2 different versions of plate 29. The text pages are very brown-toned, particularly at the top and side margin. The odd corner has been turned over. The plate paper is also toned, although less than the text. There is some marking around the margins of plates. Plate 21 has an old crease at the top corner. Please enquire if you would like to see further images to assess condition.
