Naturgeschichte Der Vogel
G. B. Griesbach's Verlag, Gera - We offer here an early edition of this magnificent work. The volume, which is undated (probably circa 1860 - 1880), contains 120 full-page, coloured plates of birds of the world, plus four further coloured plates of bird nests and two pages of black and white engravings showing the development of birds from eggs and 253 pages of text. The book is bound in original green cloth with elaborate decoration on spine and front cover in gilt and black; the volume has been skillfully re-cased in the original binding with new cream-coloured endpapers. Top and tail of spine are a little bumped and rubbed, as are the corners of the boards; the title-page is uniformly darkened and the first 38 pages of the text are moderately to heavily foxed; the rest of the text and the illustrations are bright and clean. Overall the volume is in very nice condition for its age and the original binding is very bright. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
