London: John Van Voorst, 1873 pp: xxiii (with one duo-tone lithograph frontispiece), 1-384 (with 35 hand-colored lithographs by John G. Keulemans), [1-4] unpaginated reviews, [1] proposed series of supplementary plates. Blind and gilt stamped lettering and decoration. All edges of text block are gilded. Zimmer (1926) states "A monograph of the subject, with synonymy, native name, description, and account of habits and characteristics of each of 145 species. Only 500 copies of this edition were issued." He goes on to report that the work was published in 5 parts beginning in March of 1872 and completing the last part in April of 1873. A second edition to this work was published in 1887-1888, with a supplement in 1905-1906. This copy was been rebacked with a little loss of the original cloth at spine ends. Gilt on spine covers is faded, though can still be seen. Gilt image on top cover is only a little faded and remains very clear. Cloth stretches over beveled board and shows wear along lower edge and corners, as well as scattered other scuffs and light wear. Top hinge (internal) is broke, though appears to have been previously re-glued and to be tight. Bottom hinge is good, and entire volume remains tight and solid. End leaves are rubbed and scuffed, and there is a small name sticker on the front paste down. Moderate to heavy foxing on end leaves and first and last leaves with significant impact on the frontispiece. Contents are slightly age toned along edges. Occasional small and light smudges, though overall the contents are otherwise clean and intact. The Keulemans plates are all in Very Good condition. Due to the size and weight of this volume, additional charges may apply for Priority and/or International shipping.. First Edition. Cloth - Hard Cover. Fair+/No Dust Jacket. Illus. by John G. Keulemans. 4to.
