Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Illustrated with 358 full-page engraved, hand-colored plates. 4to. Bound in original contemporary publisher’s ½-leather-backed cloth, gilt decorations on spine, 5 raised bands, all edges marbled. London: Groombridge and Sons, 1851-1857. First Edition. First Issue. 6 volumes. Only the first edition sets were fully hand colored. In later editions the backgrounds were not colored. Morris’s A History of British Birds was first published in monthly parts from June 1850, over a period of 7 years. Each part contained 24 pages of letterpress and 4 hand-colored plates. It was a resounding success. The inspiration for the book came from the renowned English printer, Benjamin Fawcett, who approached Morris to write the text when Morris became Vicar of Nafferton. Morris was a popular writer on natural history in general, and birds in particular. His first book, Guide to an Arrangement of British Birds, was published in1834. His association with Benjamin Fawcett was to have remarkable results, particularly for the study of ornithology. Alexander Francis Lydon, one of Fawcett’s principal engravers, contributed much in technique and design. Morris became an early advocate for conservation and was instrumental in founding the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Some wear to covers; spine of volume I professionally rebacked, almost unnoticeable; heads of spines on volume II, V and VI slightly chipped; heel of spine of volume IV chipped; some inner hinges split but boards still firmly attached; some minor foxing; first 3 plates of volume V with water marks, not affecting images; o/w plates are clean and bright. A fine example of a rare, classic set. Bookseller Inventory # 6090

Item Description: John C.Ninno 1903 (5a ed ultima edizione), London, 1903. Rilegato. Book Condition: in ottime condizioni. 8° - da 20 a 28 cm. 6 voll., in 8° gr., leg. edit. in t.tela verde, titoli e figura di uccelli impressi in oro sul dorso, piatto ant. con al centro figure di uccelli impresse in oro, pp.XX-318, pp.VI-288, pp.IV-281-(3), pp.VI-258, pp.IV-232, pp.IV-252; 400 belle tavv. di uccelli inc. in legno e colorate a mano all'epoca, da dis. per lo più di Benjamin Fawcett. Occasionale fioritura, per il resto un ottimo esermplare. Freeman BNHB, 2670. Mullens-Swann p.217. Nissen IVB, 645. É questa l'ultima edizione di uno dei più famosi classici dell'ornitologia inglese della seconda metà dell' '800 e dei primi del '900. La prima rara edizione è del 1851-57. Le tavole, di buon effetto estetico vennero in gran parte copiate dalla celebre opera di John Gould The Birds of Europe (1832-1837) e furono colorate a mano dalla moglie di B.Fawcett con gran cura solo nelle prime due edizioni. La presente edizione venne rivista dall'ornitologo inglese H.Kirke Swann, il quale aggiunse un'appendice. Il numero delle tavole è superiore a tutte le precedenti edizioni, anche se la qualità non è la stessa, sopratutto rispetto alle prime due. Per quanto il testo del Rev. Morris (1810-1893) risulti piuttosto prolisso e non scevro da errori, l'opera venne largamente utilizzata dagli ornitologi del tempo, soprattutto per le tavole, offerte allora ad un modico prezzo.
