[Collection of ornithological publications (1 monograph and about 52 essays, descriptions of species, etc.)].[Paris], 1824-1854. 8vo. With 30 lithographed plates, including 26 hand-coloured. Contemporary black half sheepskin, blue paper sides, gold-tooled spine.
Ronsil 1610 (listing many but not all of these publications). Collection of about 53 scarce ornithological publications (mostly offprints from Paris's leading zoological journal) by the French ornithologist and collector Frédéric de Lafresnaye (1783-1861). An important collection bringing together some well-known larger works, such as Essai d'une nouvelle Manière de Grouper... (1838), with several smaller journal articles not listed in Ronsil, which lists about 150 different Lafresnaye publications.Many of the ornithological descriptions originally included lithographed plates. Although 30 plates are included at the end of the work a few belonging to the articles included are lacking, while a few plates come from Lafresnaye articles not included. Some occasional browning and foxing, and a few plates slightly shaved (one with the loss of a bird's beak). Very good copies.
