Book Description

FIRST EDITION, with 81 fine coloured chromolithograph plates of parrots, 3 volumes, sm.4to. (pp. 144 + 114 + 144), original green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, parrot design stamped in gilt centre of upper covers, top edges gilt
Dealer Notes
This set is without the supplement published in 1888 containing 9 plates. The supplement is notoriously rare and hardly ever accompanies sets of this work. For decades sets were broken up for these highly decorative parrot plates. It is increasingly difficult to find sets in good condition such as this set here described.
Author W. T. Greene
Date 1884
Publisher George Bell and Sons
Condition Covers slightly marked but original cloth unusually bright and unfaded, no inscriptions, plates somewhat foxed but mostly confined to blank verso of plates, stitching a little loose in volume three

Price: £3300.00
