Edward Walker, Newcastle. 1821. Seventh and fifth editions respectively. 330, 46, [2], 360, 43, [1] pages. Profusely illustrated with Bewick's famous wood-engravings. One engraving, of the heron, on page 49 of Vol. II. has been hand-coloured with grey water-colour paint which has slightly seeped through to the following page in an attractive way. The text is still readable. Bound in half green calf, rebacked with a modern spine and label. Large thick 8vo. Original marbled boards and edges. Occasional very light foxing otherwise a clean and very sound copy of a classic work on British Land and Sea Birds.
