Supplement to the General Synopsis of Birds
London: Leigh & Sotheby, 1787. First Edition. Half Leather, Marbled Boards. Extra-illustrated, with one original watercolor illustration bound in as well as 34 other additional plates, 22 of which are hand-colored. 4to. 26 by 21.5 cm. 298, [15] pp. Plus 36 hand-colored plates and 12 b/w plates. (The book calls for only 14 hand-colored plates. The additional plates have generally come from other publications, and all have neatly handwritten notes stating Vol. 7 and the page number where they were to be inserted in the top corner. The source of ten of these plates is Eleazar Albin's Natural History of Birds, issued between 1731 and 1738. Among the additional plates are those that offer alternative versions of birds depicted already. Contemporary half leather binding done a few years after the original publication (deduced from two of the additional plates dated 1789).
