A History of British Birds - Rev. F. O. Morris

1870 - George Bell and Sons, London - Second Edition
An exceptional six volume set of this milestone in ornithological illustration containing 365 fine full page hand coloured plates, each one supported by a detailed description. The artwork is by A.F. and C. Lydon, plates engraved and printed by Benjamin Fawcett, arguably the most accomplished of nineteenth century woodblock colour printers.

The preferred second edition with the plates no longer featuring the background colour, in the original gilt pictorial bindings which are particularly bright.
