Description

FIRST EDITION Volume I with double-page colored map of South America; Volume II with 38 fine hand-colored lithographic plates after H. Grönvold. Both volumes bound in half-morocco, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt; all of the original printed wrappers for both the text and illustrations are bound in. An excellent copy from the library of Dr. James M. Dolan, with his faint blind-stamp on the title pages. First edition, complete. Originally intended to be sixteen volumes, all that was published was the text to Volume I and the plates; the text to Volume II was never published due to the untimely death of Lord Brabourne during the Great War. Volume I contains a list of the birds of South America, while the plates, originally issued in six parts, illustrate the game birds and water fowl, and include some notes on most of the species by H. Kirke Swann. Brabourne (1885-1915), third Baron, was a noted ornithologist. Chubb (1851-1924), also an ornithologist, worked at the British Museum. In addition to this work, he also authored a book on the birds of British Guiana.
